The Creation Accelerator (CNW Group/Canada Council for the Arts) Twitter OTTAWA, May 28, 2019 – Today, the Canada Council for the Arts, together with CBC/Radio-Canada, announced plans to launch a new $1 million catalyst tool to amplify digital creation in Canada.This initiative, called the Creation Accelerator, will support projects in a sequence of production stages. Successful applicants will receive an initial grant to work with a producer, along with the mentorship of CBC/Radio-Canada, on the development of an original idea. Following this incubation stage, the Canada Council and CBC/Radio-Canada will select concepts for production and potential distribution on CBC/Radio-Canada’s platforms.Speaking on the Creation Accelerator initiative, Simon Brault, Director and CEO of the Canada Council for the Arts, said, “This initiative is a significant step towards supporting artists and arts organizations in the digital world. We are providing the arts sector with a new, innovative entry point to digital platforms offered by the CBC/Radio-Canada. It will give the arts sector access to an unprecedented number of Canadians. We believe there is a real appetite for original Canadian content rooted in this country’s inventive, diverse and dynamic arts sector.” Facebook “As a cornerstone of Canadian culture, the public broadcaster is very excited to be working alongside the Canada Council for the Arts to help Canadian artists tell their stories in new ways on a national scale, and reach new audiences,” added Catherine Tait, President and CEO of CBC/Radio-Canada. “We firmly believe that collaboration, like this partnership with the Canada Council for the Arts, is key to strengthening and amplifying our engagement with Canadians.”The Creation Accelerator is the first initiative of its kind for the Canada Council for the Arts, which—as part of its commitment to amplify the quality, scale and sharing of art through digital technology—has made a strong investment to increase the digital literacy of the arts sector with its Digital Strategy Fund.This pilot project will be open to artists and arts organizations across the country, in all fields of practice, including early career artists. No prior digital experience will be required.The Canada Council for the Arts will share full guidelines and details for the Creation Accelerator in late June, when the initiative opens for applications on the Council’s online granting portal.

Kaumudi, nominated in categories such as Best Director, Best Actor in a Lead Role (Male), Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Male), Best Original Script, Best Ensemble was about a rite of passage. Kaumudi has been inspired by two texts: Anand’s Malayalam novel Vyasam Vigneswaram and Jorge Luis Borges’ essay Blindness. Using the ‘moonlit timeless night’ when Krishna delivers his sermon to Arjuna as its central trope, this play explores the dynamics between an estranged father-son duo who play Eklavya’s ghost and Abhimanyu respectively, in a theatre, in late 1960’s Allahabad. The father, Satyasheel, who is a great actor and has almost lost his sight, is at his final three performances. Thus son, Paritosh, who grew up with the void of not having a father by his side, has come to challenge not only the father but also his entire school of thought.
