Are you a performing artist with a passion for reaching young people through the performing arts?
Prologue to the Performing Arts is seeking professional performing artists to join our 2019-20 roster of artists working in schools and communities across Ontario. Prologue is a not-for-profit charitable organization that facilitates opportunities for young people to experience the performing arts within Ontario. Impacting communities for over 50 years, each season Prologue reaches 500,000 children and youth through over 1,800 performances and workshops across Ontario. Prologue is seeking performing artists in all relevant disciplines (dance, theatre, music, storytelling, spoken word, puppetry and others) who reflect the diversity of Ontario to deliver performances and workshops in schools and community venues.
The following criteria will be used in selecting artists for the 2019-20 roster:
• Artistic excellence and impact in terms of creativity, technical skill, cultural relevance and production quality
• Appropriate for intended audience (grade level, curriculum content)
• Unique work that adds to the diversity of Prologue’s current and future programming (art form, discipline, content and themes, intended grade-levels and curriculum connections)
• Work and company reflect the diversity of Ontario’s population and arts community
• Work that addresses topics/issues that are relevant to school audiences and educators, enhances the arts curriculum and explores educational trends (such as social justice, equity, FNMI studies, FSL studies, etc.)
• Production is accessible to schools (cost, technical requirements, availability)
• Artist/company is available to tour within and outside of the Greater Toronto Area
• Available support materials and opportunities to enhance the performance (e.g. Q&A, study guides, workshops)
• Prologue encourages artists who reflect the diversity of Ontario to apply, including but not limited to artists of colour, Francophone artists, Deaf artists and artists with disabilities, Indigenous artists and artists living outside of Toronto
