Call for volunteers!

The Zones Théâtrales biennial is an inclusive and unifying event that provides a meeting place for the Francophone theatre artists from across the country, the presenters, and most important, the audience members and volunteers who participate in this unique event.

Events like this one would simply not be possible without the generous support of volunteers. We invite you to help out in a number of ways: assistance will be required with orientation for artists and other participants, and front of house (ushers). With the time you will choose to invest, you will be contributing directly to the success of this eighth edition of Zones Théâtrales.
