Call to Artists!: The Regent Collective Residency Program (Paprika Festival, Toronto)
“The Paprika Festival is a youth-led professional performing arts organization. Offering free year-round professional training and mentorship programs that culminate in a performing arts festival of new work by young artists.
The “Regent Collective” is a multidisciplinary art development residency program occurring in the Regent Park community from 2016 /17.
We welcome young artists of all interests and artistic backgrounds seeking to explore their artistic process with the support of our professional mentors. Our year program culminates with each of our young artists presenting their creatively constructed performance at our 16th annual Paprika Festival!
We aim to not only build a diverse skill set, but to encourage exploration within the performance arts. The Regent Collective aims to provide emerging artists with a nurturing platform to explore creative skills and topics within the arts, while also building relations with young aspiring artists and youth engaging organizations of the community. The Paprika Festival aims to connect you with elevating platforms along with opportunities to continue showcasing performance pieces beyond the program.
Deadline to apply is OCT 7th.
The Paprika Festival also offers programs such as Production, Playwriting, Creator’s Unit, Advisory Board and the Director’s Lab all which are now open to apply for!
