Theatre Gargantua’s Winter 2022 TD Emerging Artists Roundtable Series is a forum for emerging artists and graduating post-secondary students to engage directly with professional theatre makers. Moderated by Gargantua’s Artistic Director Jacquie P.A. Thomas, these sessions empower participants to develop creative relationships that help bridge the gap between formal training and professional work. This winter, a group of 10-12 emerging artists will come together in a series of four 90-minute sessions, featuring compelling guest speakers. Participants will gain insights into the Canadian theatre industry, and how to carve out a place for their own work. The Roundtable is an opportunity for a diverse collection of artists to connect with each other — artists from all theatrical disciplines are welcome to apply.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, sessions will be held via ZOOM. We’re excited that this digital opportunity opens the program to artists from beyond Toronto.
We strongly encourage and will prioritize applicants from equity-seeking communities, historically excluded or marginalized groups, and intersecting identities.
Participation is free. Space is limited.
