The Travel Subsidy Fund allows staff at PACT member companies the opportunity to attend our annual Conference and AGM when they might otherwise not be able to. The Travel Subsidy Fund is a donation based program, and so the amount in the fund and number of people given subsidies varies from year to year.
Through the use of the Travel Subsidy Fund 14 people were able to come to the 2012 PACT Conference and AGM in Grand Bend. It is PACT’s ongoing effort to be able to subsidize every applicant to the Travel Subsidy program.
Some testimonials from Travel Subsidy recipients
"For many of us working in isolation in our communities being able to travel to the PACT conference is our one chance in the year to really connect, to discuss theatre, business, issues and develop alliances for an engaged future. I hope to never miss a conference."
- Caleb Marshall, Theatre New Brunswick
“Coming from a small company, the PACT travel subsidy made it possible for me to attend my first conference in Grand Bend, ON. Our company could not have otherwise afforded to send a representative. Being a new GM, the professional development and networking opportunities, as well as the historic CTA ratification and Canada Council information session were vital to my growth as an administrative professional in this field. Please contribute whatever you can to this fund as it’s an amazing opportunity for the Canadian theatre community to get together, share ideas and grow our companies".
- Liz Lugwig, Northern Light Theatre
