The 2012 Festival of Ideas & Creation is fast approaching and Canadian Stage is looking for curious and energetic volunteers to be Festival ARTISTIC AMBASSADORS.This year’s Festival focuses on Music in Performance. It features emerging and established artists alike, and runs at the Berkeley Street Theatre (26 Berkeley St.) from May 9th – May 12th, with a special offsite event on May 13th. As an Artistic Ambassador, each volunteer will be paired with a presenting company and assist them in their rehearsals and performance as scheduled throughout the Festival. Artistic Ambassadors will be responsible for liaising between Canadian Stage and the artists involved and providing the support necessary for a successful process. Involvement with the company can range from working as an ASM, taking blocking notes, or even simply observing the process.
The Artistic Ambassador program is a fantastic way to meet accomplished artists, gain insight into new creative processes, and connect with some of the most exciting new works being created in Canada. It is also a unique opportunity to gain full access to this year’s Festival programming. In thanks, volunteers will also be offered two tickets to Canadian Stage’s production of The Game of Love and Chance on a date of their choosing (on stage until May 12).If you are interested follow this link to the application form:
