NAC English theatre
Audition Coaching with NAC English Theatre Ensemble

a partnership with Memorial University of Newfoundland (Cornerbrook), York University (Toronto) and Studio 58 (Vancouver)

The National Arts Centre is committed to being part of a theatrical industry that reflects the full diversity of Canadian society. As a small step towards this goal, the NAC is offering free individual coaching sessions for students planning to audition for post-secondary theatre training who self-identify as members of under-represented communities.

What is an under-represented community?

We understand this concept very broadly. Simply put: if you don’t see or hear enough people on Canadian stages who look or sound like you, then we’d like to hear from you.

-Whitehorse, Yukon-

*Yukon-based artists interested in conducting their first curatorial project as a mentee are encouraged to apply.

Deadline for proposals: January 29, 2016.


The Yukon National Gathering is presented by the ACC/CCA on the traditional territory of the Kwanlin Dün and Ta’an Kwäch’än First Nations from September 28 to 30th, 2016. The event is hosted in partnership with First Nations communities and Yukon arts organizations. The 2016 Gathering provides an opportunity to build relationships between Indigenous artists and curators from Yukon and curators from across this land now known as Canada. The gathering will focus on sharing knowledge and showcasing Yukon’s Indigenous artists through collegial circles, facilitated discussions and arts exhibitions. The overall theme is inspired by the metaphor of a communal fire: something that warms and feeds us, a centering time in which we share, rest and listen.

The Yukon Arts Centre has reserved its 4200 sq.ft. class-A exhibition space for this curatorial opportunity. The selected curatorial team (mentor and mentee) will have access to the Yukon Permanent Art Collection, the Yukon Arts Centre Collection and may also work with the Aboriginal Art Collection managed by the Aboriginal Art Centre, Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) in Gatineau, Quebec.
