WHAT IS ARTISTA?
ARTISTA is a FREE theatre arts mentorship program for women who are interested in creating, collaborating and learning through theatre. ARTISTA is a safe environment to explore personal, artistic and creative development.
WHO IS ARTISTA FOR?
ARTISTA is for women between the ages of 16-21 who have an interest in exploring theatre, collaborating with new people and learning about theatre as an art and as a profession. ARTISTA participants do not need to have previous theatre or arts experience to participate in the program. We strongly encourage applications from differently abled individuals, visible minorities, Aboriginal peoples and members of the LGBTQ community and we prioritize applications from individuals without the financial or parental support to pursue arts mentorship.
WHEN AND WHERE DOES ARTISTA TAKE PLACE?
ARTISTA takes place at the Georges-Vanier Cultural Centre (5 minute walk from the Lionel Groulx Metro) in Montreal.
ARTISTA takes place every Monday (5:30-10pm) from January 22nd-May 17th, 2017 (15 weeks)
HOW DOES ARTISTA WORK?
ARTISTA participants (15 people) participate in 4.5 hour weekly workshops.
Each session starts with a free meal followed by a 3 hour theatre workshop led by professionals in the Montreal theatre community and female leaders in arts and non-arts related fields.
Over 15 weeks, participants tell stories that are woven into a collective creation/performance that is presented in front of an audience.

NOTE: This year we are disheartened to have to say that Georges-Vanier Cultural Centre, the building ARTISTA is hosted in, is undergoing construction. As this is the case, there will be some restrictions for individuals with limited mobility. Please get in touch with us at [email protected] if you have any questions.
