The Ontario Presents member network connects performing arts professionals who believe in working together to support the touring of live performing arts across Ontario, for the benefit of all. Network participants support Ontario Presents’ core purpose and values, and include performing arts centres, volunteer presenting associations, municipal venue presenters, performing artists, agents, managers, consultants; and students and individuals involved in the performing arts sector.
Network members share knowledge, support their peers, and participate in programs that support the performing arts presenting ecology in Ontario and beyond.
Through our network of members, colleagues, and partners, Ontario Presents maintains an up-to-date understanding of current happenings in the sector. By sharing knowledge between members and updating members of important sector developments, we help our network to stay connected and informed.
Our members understand the important role that presenters can play in the lives of their community members, and work to develop their curatorial skills and deepen their engagement with their communities. They share a common responsibility to work generously and collaboratively, share resources, support each other through common challenges, and find solutions together.
Ontario Presents supports these goals through our many programs, such as block booking, ArtsEngageCanada, Theatre Connects, and our annual conference Contact ONtour.
