We are currently accepting applications to the Emerging Creators Unit (formerly the YCU)
The Emerging Creators Unit is accepting proposals for original 25-minute performance projects from queer or trans identified artists age 30 and under. Proposals can be for one of the following:
- An individual artist who wishes to create and perform a new work
- An individual artist who wishes to create and direct a new work to be performed by other artists
- A collaborative team of up to two creators who wish to collectively create, direct and/or perform a new work.
The Emerging Creators Unit meets on Monday afternoons, 12 to 4 pm October 26, 2015 – Feb 1, 2016.
Selected participants meet weekly as a group with Emerging Creators Unit Director Sunny Drake and Buddies dramaturge Mel Hague to take projects from idea to a performance-ready draft. The projects will be staged at The 37th Rhubarb Festival in February 2016.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: FRIDAY OCTOBER 2, 2015
