Creator's Reserve - 2009

4th Line participates in OAC Reserve program

4th Line Theatre is pleased to once again announce its participation in the 2008 Ontario Arts Councilĺ─˘s Theatre Creatorsĺ─˘ Reserve Program, a third-party recommender program of grants to theatre creators.

The Ontario Arts Council (OAC) is the province of Ontarioĺ─˘s primary funding body for professional arts activity. Since 1963, OAC has played a vital role in promoting and assisting the development of the arts and artists for the enjoyment and benefit of Ontarians.

Ontario-based professional theatre artists and artistsĺ─˘ collectives are eligible to apply to 4th Line by the closing date of January 19, 2009, for funding to develop new work. Application forms are available via Ontario Arts Council by calling 1-800-387-0058 or by visiting

Completed forms must be sent to 4th Line Theatre, accompanied by a description of the project proposed, the artistĺ─˘s resume and a sample of past work. The applications will be reviewed by Artistic Director, Robert Winslow and the companyĺ─˘s Artistic Associates.

Funding decisions will be based on the artistic interest of the project, the quality of writing samples, and the impact of the program on the artistĺ─˘s development. A positive funding decision will then be forwarded by 4th Line to the Ontario Arts Council for final recommendation.

The minimum funding request for this program is $1,000 with the maximum of $5,000. Grant amounts will be determined by the number of approved applicants and the funds available from the Creatorĺ─˘s Reserve.

4th Line will administer the granting program with the primary goal of supporting as many worthy regional playwrighting projects as possible. As a secondary priority, the theatre company will also be looking for projects that align with its artistic mandate: to preserve our Canadian cultural heritage through the development and presentation of regionally based, environmentally staged historical dramas.

For more information on 4th Lineĺ─˘s involvement with the program please contact Patricia Thorne at or (705) 932-4448. Applications should be mailed to 4th Line Theatre, Old Millbrook School, 1 Dufferin Street, Millbrook, ON, L0A 1G0.
