Education & Outreach
THE RBC EMERGING ARTIST WORKSHOP SERIES
In the RBC Emerging Artists Workshop Series, visiting artists being presented in our season, share some aspect of their unique creation process with the emerging and professional theatre, dance, music and visual arts community in Calgary through an intensive workshop.
Theatre Junction’s Emerging Artists Workshops are the only free professional theatre classes offered in Calgary. Through these Workshops, our local artists and citizens are given the opportunity to interact with and learn from leading creators in local, national and international live art across disciplines.
THEATRE JUNCTION’S HIGH-SCHOOL MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
Every year, our award-winning Mentorship Program with Theatre Junction GRAND offers 16 high school students the unique opportunity to learn about creating their own original performance through an intensive workshop series with our Company of Artists while developing one-on-one mentoring relationships with theatre professionals.
Theatre Junction is committed to developing a context for contemporary performance in the city of Calgary. Our Outreach programs reflect our belief that the artist is in a unique position to imagine new ways of living and being together that will activate the spectator and ultimately transform the society.
Theatre Junction invites all of the artists presented in our season to participate in post-performance discussions with the audience, mediated by members of our team at Theatre Junction, including our annual University of Calgary intern. Artist Talks give the public the opportunity to interact directly with the work they have just experienced.
