STAF in partnership with Theatre Ontario presents the Artist Producer Training (APT) Program

Some of the ideas that informed APT came out of
the Open Source Brainstorm held in the
Incubator of The Theatre Centre in January 2015.
The goal of the APT program is to train a new generation of artist/producers of independent theatre. Successful applicants will receive comprehensive, innovative, hands-on training with top industry professionals as they create and implement strategies and projects.

Graduates will have the skills to sustain a career in the arts. Some may become ‘guns-for-hire’, working on a contract-by-contract basis on the one-off shows that drive indie performance, while others may bring these new skills to creating and producing their own work. All will learn entrepreneurial and innovation-based strategies that include adequately compensating artists and producers.

The APT program is an investment in improving the independent theatre ecology.

Therefore each participant will receive $1000 for successful completion of this FREE training program.

This one-year program will consist of three semesters of practical training, followed by a mentored practicum component in the fourth and final semester. All training will take place at the STAF and Theatre Ontario offices in Toronto. The part-time schedule will be announced shortly.

Deadline to apply is July 13th.
