Call for Submissions: Residency Program

Hosted by Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre

Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre is pleased to announce a province-wide call for submissions to a Residency Program. The Residency Program aims to support the creation and development of work by independent Manitoba theatre collectives and companies.

For the 2021/22 season and the pilot year for the Residency Program, Royal MTC will provide a week-long residency in the digital studio of the Tom Hendry Warehouse (190 Rupert Ave, Winnipeg), with the venue rental fee waived, and a $3,000 honorarium to resident companies as a subsidy for artistic costs.

The Residency Program is intended to incubate ideas for artists, collectives and companies in the development stages of new work. A final presentation is not required, but resident companies can also choose to share the activity, exclusively digitally, on their own platform. (No live audiences of any size will be allowed in the venue).

Up to three resident companies will be selected for this pilot year and successful applicants will be notified the week of August 16, 2021.   Deadline for Submissions: Monday August 9, 2021 

Accessibility

While all are welcome to apply, priority will be given to artists and collectives who self-identify from underserved communities in an effort to address and overcome ongoing systemic barriers in the Canadian theatre ecology.
