Big News Artstrekkers!!
We’re LEVELLING UP our plans for the summer! Here’s the deal…we get that many folx are really, really, really tired of spending long hours at the computer in online classes or meetings. The prospect of a full week in intense (though really fun) theatre classes over a summer break may seem a bit daunting. But we really want to give theatre-loving Albertan teens a chance to get together, meet some awesome theatre artists and instructors, and have some fun with the Artstrek Super Team, all in a safe and welcoming way.
So…we’ve morphed Artstrek into something completely different for the summer of 2021. Artstrek programming is now more flexible and will allow you to sign up and attend workshops and activities that you select based on your interests and preferences. Check out the Artstrek 2021 Schedule to see what’s happening.
This levelled up version of Artstrek 2021 is FREE TO ATTEND and is open to all Albertan teens between 12-18 years of age who love live theatre! This is an incredible chance for us to foster emerging theatre artists in every corner of the province. We’re so excited! And we hope to see you there! In the meantime, check out this awesome Artstrek Curriculum Team!
Please note: All workshops and activities are open to any teen between the ages of 12-18! This is different from what typically happens at Artstrek where each ‘Exploration’ is designed for different ages and experience levels. This year, you can join any activity, no matter which week it’s on!
If you’re interested in joining the Artstrek 2021 fun, let us know. Fill out the nifty ‘Expression of Interest’ form at the link below and we’ll send along an activity sign-up sheet and more details about what you can expect.
Artstrek friends and fans, now, more than ever we need your help to make this free version of Artstrek 2021 an amazing experience for Albertan teens. Please consider making a donation to Theatre Alberta through our Shaw Birdies for Kids portal or through the #ChipInForKids program. Donations raised through these programs will be matched by Shaw and/or the Shaw Charity Classic, and will go a long way in supporting Artstrek 2021 and future (in-person, we hope) iterations of the program.
