CATR Grants/Subventions ACRT

The CATR/ACRT Grants were established in 2018.

These grants aim to diversify the Association’s programming while extending its impact beyond the annual conference site and time. Awarded on an annual basis, these $500 grants will be dispersed to CATR/ACRT members to provide assistance to initiatives that support the goals of the Association taking place outside of the context, theme, time and place of the annual conference. Projects that support and engage CATR member graduate students, recent doctoral graduates and emerging scholars will be prioritized.

Eligible activities include the following:

  • local/regional conferences, workshops, meetings, and in general activities that respond to the need for scholars to support each other through the exchange of ideas, in person or online
  • small-scale events/projects, for which the grant is sufficient, or as ‘seed’ funding for additional fundraising (SSHRC conference grants, for example, but not exclusively)

NB: Due to the Covid-19 situation, this program is suspended. A new deadline will be announced to members in 2021.

2020 Recipients

Matt Jones, Sebastian Samur, & Nae Hanashiro Ávila for their project, “Quarantine Performance: Global Responses to COVID-19 in the Performing Arts.” This three part project explores the transnational, global impacts on performance in light of the COVID-19 pandemic by exploring online innovative performances created in Canada and globally and then creating a website as well as hosting a virtual roundtable with artists.

Rohan Kulkarni and Robert Motum for their project to create and support a BIPOC Emerging Scholars Panel at FOOT 2021. This Emerging Scholars Panel will provide a space for BIPOC graduate students to share ideas and experiences as well as brainstorm ways to practice anti-racism in academic communities.

Ces subventions ont comme but de diversifier la programmation de l’Association tout en prolongeant son impact au-delà du lieu et du moment du colloque annuel. Décernées annuellement, ces subventions de 500 $ seront accordées aux membres de l’ACRT/CATR afin de soutenir les initiatives qui rencontrent les objectifs de l’Association en dehors du contexte, du thème, des dates et du lieu du colloque annuel. Seront priorisés les projets qui appuient et mobilisent les étudiants diplômés de l’ACRT, les récents titulaires d’un doctorat ou les chercheurs émergents.

Parmi les activités admissibles, on compte :

  • les conférences locales ou régionales, les ateliers, les réunions et les activités générales qui répondent à la nécessité des chercheurs de se soutenir mutuellement par l’échange d’idées, en personne ou en ligne ;
  • les événements ou projets à petite échelle pour lesquels la subvention est suffisante, ou servant comme financement de départ pour des collectes de fonds supplémentaires – par exemple, mais de façon non exclusive, les subventions du CRSH pour des activités scientifiques.
