Sponsor A School With Their Residency

Covid 19 has meant that theatre artists are struggling to find work. The challenge in this pandemic is to be able to work digitally. This means training in new mediums like video production and graphics. 

We are committed to bringing our artists along with us on this journey of adaptation. Funds donated to this campaign can be leveraged 3 to 1 using the federal wage subsidy program.

Campaign Goal: $100, 000
$35,000 raised so far

sponsors

We have been working to develop a series of theatrical activities, workshops, and performance ideas that allow schools to learn about and celebrate Nationally and International recognized days such as Orange Shirt Day and World Health Day.  As this program is still in the development stage, we are raising funds to continue development and testing in schools throughout Alberta with the goal of eventually offering the program Canada wide. Preliminary testing feedback has been very positive and we are looking forward to implementing all the great ideas that our partner teachers have given us!
