During the 12 days of the Festival, we provide participants (ages 18-29) the opportunity to further develop the skills necessary to pursue a career in professional theatre.

Interactive Workshops: Learn more about effective strategies on self-producing, budgeting, grant writing, PR & marketing strategies, inclusivity & equity practices, audience engagement, and more

Mentorship Opportunities: Get connected with theatre professionals and industry experts who offer guidance and advice, connecting you with the artistic community.

TENT gave me access to the hardworking people making theatre in Canada, and it taught me how I can be one of them.
