Queer Emerging Artists Awards
Hosted by Buddies in Bad Times Theatre
This year, we are offering five Queer Emerging Artist Awards to assist emerging artists focus on their artistic practice and deepen their connection to 2SLGBTQ+ communities.
Five $1000 awards will be disbursed to queer emerging artists in any live performance discipline. The funding is not tied to a project or specific outcome, and can be spent as you wish. In addition, each award also provides a $500 stipend to be spent on professional development (mentorship, courses, workshops etc.).
The Buddies Queer Emerging Artist Award recognizes and encourages the achievements of queer artists who are founding careers in the theatre while engaging with the community. The Queer Emerging Artist Award has been distributed since 2014, and was originally made possible by a gift from the estate of John Alan Lee.
- This award is limited to artists in any live performance discipline who reside in the Greater Toronto Area.
- Here, emerging artist refers to artists with 2-5 years of professional experience, regardless of age.
Deadline: Friday, November 6, 11:59PM
