“The Banff Playwrights Colony is an incredible gift for a writer…the gift of time, care, support, camaraderie, and above all a space of your own to confront and explore your work with an intensity we cannot manage at home. To dive deep and know you will emerge for air among friends.”
About The Banff Playwrights Colony
The Playwrights Colony has since 1974 offered Canadian playwrights a powerful and inspiring environment to work on their plays amidst the natural environment of The Banff Centre while surrounded by performing artists from across Canada and around the world.
Each year The Colony addresses a broad theme and invites playwrights to consider it when making their application. In 2015 The Colony will explore playwright-driven interdisciplinary works.
The Colony is committed to hosting a dynamic conversation about storytelling and contemporary theatre during each creative residency and invites all accepted participants to push Canadian theatre into the future. The Colony seeks artists who are asking questions about our society, who are challenging form, who are taking risks, and seeking a safe place where they can take their play to unsafe places they could otherwise not reach.
