Job Posting: Teesri Duniya Theatre seeks Animators/Theatre Artists for Fireworks community programs

Submission deadline: August 14th, 2018

Teesri Duniya Theatre‘s Fireworks program is expanding with 3 new community engaged projects, and the company is currently seeking Artists/Animators to join the team.

“The Neighbourhood Theatre” is an after-school program that seeks to introduce youth from the Little Burgundy area to theatre through play. October 2018 – November 2018.

“Connecting Generations” is an inter-generational program that uses letters to self as the basis of storytelling and collective creation. Saturdays from October 2018 – December 2018.

“Telling Our Stories Sharing our Lives” is a partnership project between Teesri Duniya Theatre and Black Mental Health Connection, and supported by Canadian Heritage. It is a multi-phase project that includes workshops in community setting, a digital archive built by youth, and collective creation and production. Using storytelling as a tool for exchange and resilience building within the Black community, this project will also collect verbatim data, which will be used for collective creation with community youth, on a show that will tour community settings in February 2020.
Project runs October 2018 – March 2020 with the goal to repeat with another marginalized community. Artist/animator may be engaged for any or all phases of the project.

If you are an animator/theater artist who also enjoys community based engagement, please submit your C.V. and a cover letter detailing your current art practice and previous animation/facilitation experience no later than August 14, 2018. Training in socially engaged practices or Theatre for Development is considered an asset.
