CDAP

Toronto Fringe: TD culturally diverse artist project (cdap). Applications for CDAP 2015 are now open. Deadline:

PROJECT GOAL: To encourage participation by culturally diverse artists in the Toronto Fringe Festival as a creative opportunity they may traditionally feel excluded from.

The Toronto Fringe is committed to offering creative opportunities to artists and arts lovers. With the generous and invaluable support from TD Bank, we are able to launch another three years of this project that encourages greater participation in the Fringe Festival by artists who self-identify as culturally diverse. Participation is encouraged by removing some of the traditional barriers to participation, including financial concerns, awareness of the Fringe, artistic support and a sense of being excluded from mainstream events.

Fringe Festival participants are chosen by lottery and are required to self-produce their work.
