ABOUT
This program presents an opportunity for 2QTBIPOC youth interested in the backstage side of performing arts to develop their skills; meet with mentors; work on a professional, politically-engaged project; and access an affirming creative space. In the Spring 2019 iteration of this program, participants will each have a dedicated mentor and work in a specific production area on the upcoming production of Michel Marc Bouchard’s classic queer play, Lilies; Or, the Revival of a Romantic Drama, produced by lemonTree creations, Why Not Theatre, and Buddies In Bad Times Theatre, and being presented on the Buddies mainstage in May 2019.

Following the themes of this production of Lilies, program participants will also explore how we as 2QTBIPOC artists can work in solidarity with prisoner justice initiatives and help imagine new models for justice and accountability in the world.

We are accepting mentees in four different production area roles:
- Direction
- Set Design
- Costume Design
- Community arts facilitation

We particularly encourage applications from artists who are: Indigenous/Two-Spirit; trans; non-binary; women.
