My First Fringe - Imagining Our New World

Applications for August 2020 are now closed.

Are you curious about presenting work at a Fringe Festival, but don’t know where to start? Are you hoping to connect with established theatre artists? Do you want to share space with other theatre-makers your age?

Join us this summer for an online series called My First Fringe - Imagining Our New World, created especially for youth artists aged 13-19.

Taking place from July 27 - Aug 14, this series of 6 two-hour workshops will include creation, direction, design and producing workshops from established and practicing theatre artists in Toronto. Participants of My First Fringe will become part of a knowledge and space-sharing experience with other youth and established artists, and will leave with a deeper knowledge on how to launch future Fringe (or indie) shows. Participants will also be guided through a mock application process to the 2021 Toronto Fringe Festival, so they are prepared to submit (if they wish) in the fall. 

The workshop series will end in a presentation that showcases what the youth artists have been working on. We will also invite all participants to engage in a post-mortem and assessment session with Program Coordinators Senjuti Sarker and Jules Vodarek Hunter.
