Industry Listing, Workshop / Classes.

Free immersive summer program for artists taking their first steps into the professional arts world.

Workshops: Our workshops outline what steps to take after graduation upon entering the theatre world. Previous workshops include “Producing 101” by Julie Tepperman & Aaron Willis (Convergence Theatre), “Okay, I’ve Graduated … Now What the Hell Do I Do?” by Claire Wynveen, “You are the Product – How to Create and Sell your own Brand” by Lucy Eveleigh and a special workshop from the Artist Health Alliance.

Mentorship: Our mentorship program connects participants to artistic mentors who offer guidance and advice, connecting them with the inner workings of the artistic community. Mentors last year were Sarah “Pip” Bradford and Mina James.

Panel Discussions: The best of emerging and established theatre professionals come together to answer questions from participants. Past panelists include Marjorie Chan (Cahoots Theatre Company), Brandan Healy (Buddies in Bad times), and Amy Lee (U.N.I.T. Production / Morro & Jasp).

Rush Pass: Each participant is given a T.E.N.T. Rush Pass to the Fringe Festival and encouraged to see as many shows as possible.
