Artstrek Memories: “Five Years Fly By” – Jake

I attended Artstrek for five years, starting in 2008 and concluding last year with “Romeo and Juliet.” This fall I am entering into my second year at RDC in the Theatre Performance and Creation diploma program and I hope to one day return to Artstrek as a super or instructor. I love creating art of any kind and travelling to view shows, visual art and music is never a dull moment either.

Artstrek Memories: “Artstrek 2011 and 2012” – Bailey

My name is Bailey, and this year will be my third year attending artstrek. Its a little harder to stay connected with my friends there because i live in such a small town a few hours away, but I still miss them all dearly!artstrek is one of my most favorite times of the whole year, and I am ecstatic to be returning!

Artstrek Memories: “The Les Miserables Collective and Connection – 2005” – Erinn

I attended Artstrek for three years as a student from 2005 to 2007, and then I was the Artstrek Registrar in 2010. During that time I was working on my BA Honors in Drama at the University of Alberta, where I graduated in 2011. I am currently completing my MA in Drama Therapy at Concordia University in Montreal, and I am going to be employed as a Drama Therapy Intern next year at the PTSD Center in New Haven, Connecticut, where I will be working with traumatized populations. I use the same kinds of techniques that originated within the drama community as a form of therapy with people of all ages, specifically using the processes of improvisation, embodiment, roles, witnessing, dramatic projection, ritual, transformation, and play. Now I am writing a research paper about the performance that I created, called Infertile: Inhale, Pop, Hiss, Sigh, based on my personal experience of infertility, which was received very well by the Creative Arts Therapies community in Montreal.

Artstrek – An Experience of a Lifetime!

For more than 50 years, Artstrek has been inspiring Albertan teens about the exciting world of theatre and theatre production. Every year in our program brochure, we always post 4-5 quotes about Artstrek from students who have attended in the previous years… but these do not really capture the true impact
