A series of workshops for local artists will get underway this week through Winnipeg’s Sarasvati Productions.
Three workshops, a Q&A with industry professionals and a monthly social event are some of the things emerging artists can look forward to beginning December 13.
The Wonderful World of Grants 101 will open up the series, facilitated by a representative from Winnipeg Arts Council and Manitoba Arts Council. They will talk about the various grant programs each of their organizations offers, who is eligible and how you apply for them, particularly as an emerging artist. Admission is free, but registration is required.
Next up is a workshop by playwright and director Sharon Bajer on January 27, who will be the facilitator of How to Get Your Foot in the Door, a workshop on how to format cover letters, resumes, scripts and headshots to industry standard while still making them stand out. The cost is $15.
The final workshop is Get Your Act Together, an introduction to business basics for theatre artists with Jan Skene on March 8 at 4 p.m. The cost is $15.
Theatre Lives: Q&A with Krista Jackson & Rod Beilfuss will run February 5 at 5:30 p.m. Krista is directing Private Lives at the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre Warehouse with Rod apprentice directing. Admission is free, but registration is required.
