CALL FOR APPLICANTS: INDIGENOUS ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE
The National Theatre School is searching for Indigenous artists in residence (IAR) to participate in a two-year program.
The IAR program is a boutique training opportunity offered to established Indigenous artists. The program is comprised of training across all the programs in the School, with curriculum determined by the resident artist in concert with the teachers and leaders at NTS. The residency culminates in the development of the artist’s own artistic project.
Resident artists must be available on an intermittent basis from January 2018 to May 2019. As much as possible, the residency will be organized around existing obligations, but artists should be ready to commit to significant periods of time in Montreal.
Who Should Apply:
The IAR are available to Indigenous artists with 5+ years of professional practice in the performing arts. Applicants should:
- Be seeking to advance specific elements of their craft;
- Have a strong sense of their artistic approach and practice;
- Believe in the power and usefulness of lifelong training;
- Are seeking to learn and share their own experiences with the community of the School.
Deadline for applications: August 25, 2017
Please call 1-866-547-7328 x 132 for further information.
