New Project receives Ontario Arts Council Grant

Kitchener , Ontario - On November 10th, 2004, the Ontario Arts Council (OAC) announced the recipients of their Theatre Projects Development Phase II grants. The OAC jury received 90 applications and chose only 32 programs to receive funding. We are pleased to announce that The MT Space was among the winning projects!

The MT Space is elated by the OAC's decision to support the forthcoming project; The Season of Immigration to the West. This grant will enable the MT Space to collect stories of immigration from the multicultural community and develop them into a stage production. The support of the OAC will help us contribute to the development of contemporary theatre in the Waterloo Region, while simultaneously providing an outlet for immigrant voices in our area. The MT Space would like to express our extreme gratitude to the OAC for this opportunity; Thank-you Ontario Arts Council!
