Support Professional Development for Northern Artists
Arts education and ongoing learning is crucial to career building yet can be rare to come by in Northern Ontario. Fringe North is working towards building a professional development workshop weekend at the start of each season to help support artists and allow them to further their careers. Artists would be able to attend workshops on several themes related to professional growth such as marketing and branding, lighting and sound, tour creation, creative writing/storytelling, how to emerge as an artist, grant writing and more! Workshop themes may vary slightly year to year. Artists participating in that season’s festival would be invited to attend as part of their overall festival package and past artists and public would be invited to attend for a small accessible fee. The goal is to begin this initiative in either Spring 2024 or Spring 2025 depending upon funding.
Your donations help cover the costs of running the weekend, paying professional workshop leaders, travel cost for artists who reside out of town, etc.
This is a one time donation.
