Paul Gravett Scholarship Fund 2019

CAPACOA serves the performing arts touring and presenting community through its commitment to integrate the performing arts into the lives of all Canadians.

Through the Paul Gravett Scholarship Fund, CAPACOA is able to offer an emerging art professional a guaranteed attendance to the 2019 CAPACOA Conference, and participation in The Succession Plan (TSP). CAPACOA will absorb the costs of the successful applicant’s attendance to the Conference, including airfare and accommodations up to $1,000. Nourishment and other incidentals are to be covered by the attendee. This scholarship supports young performing arts professionals for whom the costs of attendance are prohibitive.

An eligible candidate is:

  • Reside in Canada
  • Works in the performing arts as: an artist, artist agent or manager, arts administrator in a presenter (theatre, festivals, and music presentation)
  • Applicants must be in the initial stages (1-10 years) of their careers

Consideration will be given to members of marginalized or underrepresented groups, including, but not limited to, First Nations, Inuit and Metis people, People of Colour, LGBTQ2+ people, Immigrants and Refugees, and any intersection or overlap between these communities. The successful applicant must participate in the TSP program.

TSP is a program wherein CAPACOA reaches out to emerging and mid-career arts professionals seeking to strengthen core competencies, provide leadership development and equip participants with the tools and resources necessary to be active participants in the development of arts and culture in their community.

Applicants must submit a completed application form by August 28, 2019. Applications must be submitted to Andrew Giguère. Feel free to connect if you have any questions.
