The National Theatre School is searching for artists to participate in a two-year Indigenous Artists in Residence program.
This program is a flexible training opportunity offered to established Indigenous artists. Training across all the School’s core programs is possible, with curriculum determined by the resident artist in concert with the teachers and leaders at NTS. The residency culminates in the development of the artist’s own artistic project.
Jimmy Blais (Cree, Muskeg Lake Cree Nation, SK) and Sylvia Cloutier (Inuit, Kuujjuaq, Nunavik) share their experience as Indigenous Artists in Residence at the National Theatre School of Canada
Resident artists must be available as much as possible from September 2020 to May 2022. The residency will try to accommodate existing obligations, but artists should be ready to commit to significant periods of time in Montreal.
Who Should Apply:
The residency is available to Indigenous artists with 5+ years of professional practice in the performing arts.
Be seeking to advance specific elements of their craft;
Have a strong sense of their artistic approach and practice;
Believe in the power and usefulness of lifelong training;
Be seeking to learn and share their own experiences with the community of the School.
Deadline for applications: October 18, 2019
