4th Line Theatre’s Managing Artistic Director Kim Blackwell is thrilled to announce two new initiatives at the theatre and the renaming of a program already in existence. The goal of these programs is to help catapult artists to new heights while focusing on and empowering those in the theatre who would not normally have these types of opportunities.
4th Line has renamed its TEAM (Training Education Apprenticeship Mentorship) Program the Emerging Voices Program. As well, the theatre is introducing new artistic initiatives with its Epic Women’s Directing Project and the Canadian Pulse Series. These programs will focus much needed light on women artists, regional community volunteers and will explore the challenging stories that play out every day in Canadian society.
“At 4th Line Theatre we are committed to giving a voice to people and stories which would remain largely hidden and isolated without us,” explains Blackwell. “With these three exciting programs, we hope to give people the opportunity to find their artistic voices and change the world around them.”
