Artists Wanted: InterMISSION returns to the Fredericton Playhouse

Category: arts 218

The Fredericton Playhouse will continue to offer its InterMISSION artist residency program providing qualified artists the opportunity to use its professional facilities and services to create and develop new work.  

The Fredericton Playhouse has extended its InterMISSION artist residency series into the coming season. Applications are now being accepted for available residency time during the summer of 2022 and winter of 2023.

The artist residency program, established during the pandemic, will continue to expand the capacity and activities in the theatre during otherwise quiet periods in the annual rental and programming cycle. Designed for local artists to nurture and support creativity and innovative practices in their craft, the residency program offers artists mentorship, space and support.

During the inaugural season, the Playhouse welcomed 71 local artists for 11 multi-disciplinary residencies while the stage was not being used for regular programming. This time was used for artistic activities including script development, preparing for concerts, movement exploration, filming music videos, and more.

For full eligibility and application details, please visit https://bit.ly/3jPYdhs, or contact Lesandra Dodson, Director of Programming, at lesandra@theplayhouse.ca. Playhouse technical staff, specializing in theatrical lighting, sound, and multi-media arts, are available to the artists to work on individually designed proposals of development and exploration. The Playhouse staff is also available to assist with designing proposals, grant writing, production tutorials or other educational components involved in an artist’s creative project.

Application deadline: August 31, 2021.
