For teens 80 kms or more outside of Edmonton or Calgary
Karen Cork is pleased to once again offer bursary support to teens who live outside urban centres to attend Theatre Alberta’s Artstrek with the The Rural Outreach Bursary.
The bursary is specifically for teens in smaller communities or in rural Alberta, where there are fewer opportunities for young people interested in theatre and drama to explore their craft. To be eligible, you must live 80 kms or more outside of Edmonton or Calgary. There are two $300 bursaries available to be awarded to teens attending Artstrek 2017.
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 12, 2017.
Theatre Alberta recommends applying to attend Artstrek before the bursary deadline to ensure you are placed in the Exploration of your 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.
