Alberta Playwrights’ Network’s YOUth Riot – now in its fourth year – is a FREE opportunity for Calgary’s Queer youth to rise against the status quo and learn to share their voices through the art of theatre!
Over the course of 3 months, Alberta Playwrights’ Network and guest artists will facilitate a playwriting program for Queer teens, helping them tell their stories through the medium of 10-minute text for performance. Designed to ignite creativity in teens, YOUth Riot provides valuable tools to foster confidence, acceptance, and positive self-image through workshops, mentorship, and skill-building sessions.
YOUth Riot finishes with a public festival of short plays written by the participants and staged by professional actors and directors from the theatre community.
YOUth Riot runs every Thursday at 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM from February 22nd – May 3rd, 2018. All meetings are at CommunityWise Resource Centre, 223 12th Avenue SW.
