The National Arts Centre is committed to being part of a theatrical industry that reflects the full diversity of Canadian society. As a small step towards this goal, the NAC is offering free individual coaching sessions for students planning to audition for post-secondary theatre training who self-identify as members of under-represented communities.
What is an under-represented community?
We understand this concept very broadly. Simply put: if you don't see or hear enough people on Canadian stages who look or sound like you, then we’d like to hear from you.
Successful candidates will be paired with a professional artist connected to the NAC for two one-hour sessions via skype or similar technology. Students will receive coaching for their upcoming audition(s), and will have the opportunity to ask a professional artist about the reality of a career in the theatre.
We have a limited number of spaces available for this program. Admission is by application. Students may apply from anywhere in Canada.
To apply, please send us:
- a brief statement telling us about how you self-identify and outlining your career aspirations (300-500 words)
- a headshot or other portrait of yourself
- contact information including your email address and phone number
Application Deadline: February 26, 2016
Coaching will take place in the spring of 2016.
