Virtual Panel Discussion

Stories to Action: Co-Creating Inclusive Pathways To Professional Theatre In Edmonton

April MacDonald Killins is seeking panel participants for a virtual salon at the 2021 Expanse Festival, part of the Chinook Series by Azimuth Theatre.

This panel will bring together 4 theatre artists with a variety of lived experiences, to speak candidly about accessing the theatre community in Edmonton. This opportunity is open to any artist with experience facing barriers to inclusion. This is an open call to provide equal opportunity within the community.

  • Speakers will receive a $150 honorarium.
  • The salon will take place sometime between March 25 and April 4.
  • We can work around reasonable scheduling needs. This event will happen on an evening or weekend.
  • At least one prior conversation will be necessary with April, and perhaps one more with the full panel prior to the event.
  • The agenda with talking points will be provided to speakers at least two weeks in advance and will be open to feedback.

Apply to be our Expanse Festival Production Management Mentee!

This is an opportunity for one on one mentorship in facilitation, tech, and project management. The chosen applicant will, among other things, be tasked with supporting our Production Manager in whatever ways are deemed necessary to bring the festival to life. This year’s Production Management mentee will learn many facets of this process, including meeting the specific technical needs of each Expanse piece, maintaining timelines, communicating with festival producers, partners, and production team, and doing it all with the ability to pivot in case of a change in public health orders. If you are a self-motivated go-getter who is the kind of person that learns best from a hands-on approach, this could be the opportunity for you.
