Calling All Artists! The 2016 Workshop Tour Awaits

The Cultural Exchange is looking for personable, passionate, and talented artists to join the 2016 Workshop Tour. Every year for the past three decades, the troupe has travelled for a month-plus to deliver artistic workshops at elementary and high schools across Saskatchewan.

The 2016 tour runs from September 24 to October 30, 2016. Applications are due April 25, 2016.

The troupe requires artists intimately familiar with drama, visual arts, music, or dance. They need to be comfortable working with students and should be bondable.

Artists in the troupe will each need to develop a workshop that they can modify for students of various ages. They will make themselves available prior to the tour to meet with the tour manager. Then, in the fall of 2016, they will travel with the troupe, delivering the workshop multiple times a day. Overnight trips to Saskatchewan communities will be required.

This is an exciting opportunity to practice your craft and meet who will be the next generation of Saskatchewan artists.

Go to the Cultural Exchange’s website for more information on the Workshop Tour. Contact Outreach Coordinator Rowan Pantel via email at rowan@culturalexchange.ca for further details. Those applying must include:

  • a résumé;
  • a lesson plan appropriate for students from Kindergarten to Grade 12; and
  • a budget for materials.

Applications are due Monday, April 25.
