Sunday Roundup – November 3

And here we are.

Theatre Lab closed with sold out shows last week, Bound to Create opened with a full house on Friday and rehearsals for The Tin Drum start this week.
Yesterday I was off to the opening reception for A. Shay Hahn’s annual November show at the Cameron House. You can see the work here and more importantly you can see it in person at the Cameron.

Don’t tell me there’s nothing to do in this city.

The Fourth Annual Arts Day  at the City is happening Friday the 8th. We’re meeting individually with over half of City Council to talk about the important of the arts and the good it does for our city as a whole. You can follow us and contribute on Twitter using #artsdayTO – tell us why the arts are important to Toronto, tell us why they’re important to you, post your own #justthebeginning photos (link to signage is here), read up on the info Toronto Arts Council has created so you know what’s up with arts funding for our cultural sector.

Anyway.

CDAP: Deadline November 4, 2013

PROJECT GOAL: To encourage participation by culturally diverse* artists in the Toronto Fringe Festival as a creative opportunity they may traditionally feel excluded from.

The Toronto Fringe is committed to offering creative opportunities to artists and arts lovers.  With the generous and invaluable support from TD Bank, we are able to launch our final year of a three year project to encourage greater participation in the Fringe Festival by artists who self-identify as culturally diverse by removing some of the traditional barriers to participation, including financial concerns, awareness of the Fringe, artistic support and a sense of being excluded from mainstream events.

Fringe Festival participants are chosen by lottery and are required to self-produce their work.  Festival organizers can never interfere with the work on stage and 100% of box office revenue is returned to the artists.  This has meant that the Fringe Festival has become the most accessible arts opportunity for emerging and otherwise unsupported artists to tell their stories.  Nonetheless, after researching the participation trends we see at the Festival each year we feel that artists who self-identify as culturally diverse are not applying to the Festival in the same capacity. CDAP is an attempt to begin a dialogue with this community of artists and encourage them to access the opportunities the Fringe makes available. read more
