Are your students considering a career in the arts?

Participants will meet a group of arts administrators from the National Arts Centre’s Orchestra, English Theatre, Indigenous Theatre, French Theatre, or Dance departments in a casual setting. Staff from the NAC’s Human Resources, Marketing, Finance, Development or Technical Production will join the conversation whenever available. Sessions on specific topics can be organized. Please let us know of any specific requests in your order form. This event can take place as an add-on to attending a student matinee or other event at the NAC.

Length: Approximately 40-60 minutes

Please suggest a minimum of three possible event dates on your order form; once your order has been received by the NAC, we will contact you directly to arrange a mutually convenient date and time for the workshop. Please allow a minimum of 14 days between the receipt of your order and the anticipated date of performance.

Please note that there is limited availability for this workshop. Requests are processed by a first come, first served basis.
