Deadline date: Friday April 24th, 2015
Now in its eighth year, Compass Points is a 6-day intensive program designed to inspire and nurture the careers of emerging artists from across the country.
It provides a firsthand introduction to the professional theatre industry and fosters lifelong collaborative relationships among a peer community of Canada’s next generation of theatre creators. The program will focus on providing participants with new tools, inspiration, and ideas to fuel their creative practices while engaging in a critical discourse on artistic creation and criticism. Compass Points will run from June 6-11 2015.
The Compass Points program provides participants with a three-fold approach:
Workshops & Panels – Engage with Canada’s top professional artists and theatre practitioners from across the country. Topics and events vary from year to year to complement festival programming and address current concerns and questions.
Mentorship – Each participant will be paired with one other member of the Compass Points Program. Together they will be partnered with an established artist and their company involved in the 2015 Magnetic North Theatre Festival. The participants will have unique access to the show, and the artists and practitioners involved in creating the work.
Performances – The group will attend all the performances that comprise the Magnetic North Theatre Festival. Participants will be exposed to some of the best and most daring work currently being produced across the country.
We accept applications from emerging artists across the country and of diverse cultural backgrounds who are passionate and curious about Canadian theatre and have an interest in being a part of the national community.
“I am now connected to a network of artists across Canada, many of whom I’m sure I’ll soon be collaborating with, and I now have a much greater vision as to how to move forward in my artistic practice as a young artist.” – Milton Lim, British Columbia
