Indigenous Associate Artist
Start date: 2 January, 2017
End date: 31 December, 2017
We plan to create a new part-time, year-round, position of Indigenous Associate Artist. We need to work closely with a local
Indigenous professional theatre artist who has a strong understanding of theatre and a strong tie to the local First Nations community. We will learn immensely from collaborating with this artist and will build a strong, inclusive theatre for our community. The Indigenous Associate Artist’s initial focus will be on supporting the production of the new musical Children of God, written and directed by Indigenous theatre artist, Corey Payette. The Artist will also reach out to Edmonton’s Indigenous artists and communities by facilitating meetings with Indigenous designers and directors, auditions with Indigenous actors, and offering workshops for youth and emerging performers.
Nature of the Project Reach
Edmonton and area
Our goal is to ensure that the Citadel is a proud champion of the work of Edmonton’s Indigenous theatre artists. We are determined to build the Citadel into a vibrant and healthy artistic home with the broadest engagement of all Canadians. Working with an Indigenous Associate Artist is a great way to begin that dialogue here at the Citadel.
