NAC's Creation Fund: $2.9 million invested in 19 projects

Nineteen performing arts projects have been funded to the tune of more than $2.9 million by the National Arts Centre’s National Creation Fund in its first year of operation.

The fund was established by the NAC as a way to help promising performing arts projects get to a bigger stage be that a national or international one. In a media release, the NAC says the fund invests up to $3 million a year in 15 to 20 Canadian works in theatre, dance, music and inter-disciplinary arts to enhance research and development, workshopping and residencies of what it calls “significant” new works. It also invests in works that need to go “back into the lab” before they can be remounted and showcased successfully.
