Alberta Playwrights’ Network (APN) is hosting our 7th annual YOUth Riot program beginning in March of 2021.
Originally conceived and presented with Third Street Theatre, APN is proud to offer this FREE program to LGBTQ2S+ Alberta youth between the ages of 14 – 21.
YOUth Riot 2021 will be a 5-week creative writing program where participants will meet with guest artists who will help them learn creative writing skills. This is also a great opportunity to meet other queer youth while creating and imagining in a safe space.
YOUth Riot 2021 will culminate in a weekend masterclass from a prominent, national queer artist. Participants will also be provided with an opportunity to share their work with the public at the end of the process by having their work presented by professional actors and directors from the theatre community.
This year, because the program will be offered online via Zoom, we are extending this invitation to queer youth from across the province regardless of their location.
We want to hear your story.
Here are the details:
- Participation in YOUth Riot is 100% free to you.
