Call for Submissions (Alberta): Artstrek 2016 Rural Outreach Bursary

AT Brochure TitleKaren Cork is pleased to once again offer bursary support to teens who live outside urban centres to attend Theatre Alberta’s ArtstrekThe Rural Outreach Bursary

The bursary is specifically for teens in smaller communities or in rural Alberta, where there are fewer opportunities for teens interested in theatre and drama to explore their craft. To be eligible, you must live 80km or more outside of Edmonton or Calgary. There are three $300 bursaries available to be awarded to teens attending Artstrek 2016.

To apply please apply directly to Karen Cork by email at [email protected] and include a letter detailing:

    • Where you live
    • Why you want to attend Artstrek
    • Difficulties in accessing theatre learning opportunities for teens in your community (e.g. my school doesn’t offer a drama program, there is no community theatre or youth theatre programs where I live, etc.)

Deadline to apply: June 8, 2016. 

Theatre Alberta recommends applying to attend Artstrek before the bursary deadline to ensure they are placed in the Exploration of their choice. You can indicate that you have applied for the bursary in your online application under the Community Sponsorship section. Students applying for the bursary may also apply for Theatre Alberta Artstrek Scholarships to further offset the cost of attending if they are financial need.
