High Quality Art Promoting Important Social Issues


Art For Awareness would like to work with you! We are currently seeking creative partners to propose productions for our upcoming season. Please read the details below to see if this is the opportunity for you!

AFA has a history of producing high-quality works of art with a social justice mandate. We pair each production thematically with a local charity which helps us with research and promotion, and to whom we donate a portion of our profits (for example, NEXT TO NORMAL - a musical dealing with schizophrenia  - partnered with the Schizophrenia Society of Ontario, and RENT - which focused on the AIDS epidemic of the early 1990's - partnered with the Peterborough AIDS Resource Network). Your production need not match a specific charity one-for-one, but AFA's mandate stipulates that your art should be used to raise awareness and funds for a worthy cause. Perhaps you'd like to perform Dr. Seuss's SEUSSICAL to benefit a children's library, or YOU'RE A GOOD MAN CHARLIE BROWN to benefit an animal shelter? Or are you developing an original work? Would you like to hold a workshop or need help contacting more creative types to further your work? We want to help you with your big plans and we hope to do more than put on a great show - we want to give back to the community!

Please complete the form below. If you have any supporting documents, please email them to us at

Are you developing your own work, or staging an established work?
Who is on your team already and what role do they play? Are you partnered with any other organizations?
You don’t need an exact figure at this point in time, but should have an idea of the approximate overall cost and how you plan to use that money.
Do you have an ideal performance date or are you flexible? How much preparation time will you need before presenting your work to the public?
Why is this project important to bring to the public’s attention? How does this production fit within AFA’s mandate?
Do you have a creative team assembled and need help staging the production? Are you developing an original work and require resources to workshop your piece? What can AFA do for you?
For example, have you investigated availability of rights & royalties, or considered possible venues?
What is your background in the arts or in the subject area of your production?
Is there anything else you'd like to tell us about your proposal?
