We’ve got a variety of ways for you to get involved at Buddies. From professional development opportunities for artists to drop-in workshops and spaces for intergenerational dialogue. We also present an annual award recognizing the achievements of an emerging queer artist, and support projects through the Ontario Arts Council’s Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators.

Visit our Calls for Submission page to see what opportunities are coming up, or visit our Events Calendar to find out when you can see our artists bring their work to the stage.
