“In our continuing effort to give regional artists opportunities to explore and create new work, we have developed these longer form residencies for just that purpose.”

4th Line Theatre is seeking project proposals from local artists/collectives to create original works or develop existing works during their residency. Priority will be given to artists who explore the history of the region, in whatever medium they chose to work. Special consideration will also be given to artists who look to follow 4th Line Theatre’s mandate which is to develop and present original Canadian works of artistic excellence that explore regional themes, history and heritage, and to present this work in a politically-responsible and culturally-sensitive manner.

 

4th Line Theatre will award four grants of $2,500.00 to four successful candidates in the above stated performance forms. Applications must include a 500-word description of the proposed project, what category they are applying under, and the artist(s)’s CV/Bio.  The deadline to submit proposals is December 13, 2021 at 5:00 PM. All proposals must be emailed to 4th Line’s Artistic Administrator, Jess McDougall, at jess@4thlinetheatre.on.ca.

 

Successful residency applicants will be notified by December 20, 2021. The four residencies will begin in January 2022. 4th Line Theatre will feature a hybrid (digital and live) presentation in October 2022. The presentation will showcase a performance from each of the four resident artists.

 

For more information regarding the residencies, please contact Jess McDougall by phone at 705-932-4448 or by email at jess@4thlinetheatre.on.ca.
