OAC strengthens support for individual arts managers

The Ontario Arts Council (OAC) has strengthened its support to arts managers through the Compass program. Both individual managers working within an
arts organization and independent arts managers are eligible to apply
for assistance in job shadowing, coaching, mentorship and other
professional development initiatives.

The Professional Development component expands on the program’s previous mentorship category. The Compass program continues to provide organizational development support
to help organizations engaged in not-for-profit professional arts
activity. Organizational development funds cover the costs of bringing
in a specialist to assist with activities such as strategic planning,
governance and fundraising.

With this change, OAC is responding to a key recommendation from the
2007 Compass program evaluation: to support the management capacities
of people working within arts organizations, and not just the organizations themselves.

The Compass program deadline is December 1, 2009; more program details are available here. Please read carefully.
