We’ve got a variety of ways for you to get involved at Buddies. From professional development opportunities for artists to a vital youth program introducing young people to the power of theatre. We also present an annual award recognizing the achievements of an emerging queer artist, and support projects through Theatre Creators Reserve grants.
