Deadline: 11pm ET, May 7th, 2021


The Canadian Performing Arts Assembly is a specialized group of artists, arts workers and performing arts community members working to shape the future of digital tools for the performing arts sector. The project is led by Dr. Sarah Bay-Cheng, Margaret Lam, Mariel Marshall and Dr. Daniela Rosu.

The group is currently seeking 6 founding members to participate in our inaugural residency program (all remote) between May - June 2021, with additional sessions in September 2021. The activities during this period will directly contribute to the efforts of the Performing Arts Information Representation W3C Community Group (PAIR-CG) to begin creating technical standards for (and with) the performing arts sector.

Each founding member will bring their domain experience in the performing arts sector to the table as they work with mentors and coaches to understand the basics of how digital technologies are developed and designed. They will also have a role in shaping the future growth of this group.

During the program, representatives will gain insights into the sectoral needs around the digital shift of the arts sector, receive training on the development of user stories, and actively engage in the development of a prioritized set of user stories based on a number of focus areas.

These user stories will be used by the Performing Arts Information Representation W3C Community Group (PAIR-CG) as the foundation for the early development of a framework for publishing machine-readable performing arts-related data on the web and in software application development.

The position is open to all arts practitioners and workers. No background or experience in technology is required, but ability to engage in critical and creative thinking is a must. This program is suitable for any artist or arts workers interested in growing their digital literacy skills and contributing to the next generation of digital technologies for the sector.


Founding representatives will be paid a fee of $2000 for participating in the residency program.

Total Hours: 50 hours

Timeline: mid-May to mid-July 2021 (residency) / Sept 2021 (review of PAIR-CG outputs)

Rate: $40/hour

Language: training will be offered in English
