Alliance – Artist-support program

2021-22 pwm+mai joint support for artist

Are you an artist in theatre, performance, dance, circus, interdisciplinary arts or visual arts (with a performance component)? Would you like to work with a dramaturg?

We are beyond thrilled to announce that Playwrights’ Workshop Montreal (PWM) and MAI have joined forces to create a joint support program for artists interested in working with a dramaturg!


The following artists are eligible to submit proposals: Indigenous artists (First Nations, Métis, and Inuit), racialized artists (including racialized recent immigrants), members of the 2SLGBTQQIPAA+ communities, Deaf artists, disabled artists, neurodiverse artists, and artists living with chronic illness and/or chronic pain.

*We accept applications from artists in theatre, performance, dance, circus, interdisciplinary arts and visual arts (with a performance component) if they are interested in collaborating with a dramaturg from theatre and performance.


Find out about the program’s unique structure, criteria, and the various services it offers by going to the official page here.

Deadline: September 20, 2021, at 23:59pm.


Alliance is supported by the City of Montreal, The Government of Quebec, and the Canada Council for the Arts.
