Public funding bodies in Canada often assess grant applications based on their viability, artistic merit, and impact. Impact refers to the project or organization's ability to create an impact on the applicant, other artists, communities, audiences, and its participants. Community (and impact) is an incredibly important part of producing, because you are the one who is bringing people together, and deciding on the conditions that folks will be gathering within. Also, live performance does not happen within a bubble (although sometimes it may feel that way). Smart producing is recognizing the conditions in which you are putting on a project, and responding to those conditions within the experience, the workplace, and the art. What are the ways that you can make your project more accessible, inclusive and impactful? Explore the topics below:
