GVPTA’s Digital Connections Program offers underrepresented theatre artists (specifically, Indigenous, racialized, d/Deaf and disability communities) a paid opportunity for training on effective communication and promotion of their digital or hybrid projects through online platforms and will connect them with regional, national, and international presenters. The program is free of charge to participants.
GVPTA will offer successful applicants a participation fee for this four-month program, which includes cohort-based workshops, individualized coaching, guest speakers on the performing arts industry and digital practice, and an online roundtable between artists and presenters.
This program provides participants with the opportunity for peer learning, to forge connections, to gain new skills, and to learn how to effectively share and communicate their artistic work in the industry. Participating artists will get the chance to level up and access greater opportunities for the presentation of their new or in-development works.
Artists interested in submitting an application can review the recording of an Info Session held on August 9 to learn more about the program. Application intake will open and the online application form will be available on Tuesday, August 10.
The Digital Connections Program will be facilitated by Dani Fecko and Joyce Rosario.
