Jewish Arts Mentorship Program

Hosted by The Segal Centre

The Segal Centre is a leading English language theatre in Montreal, and an important cultural resource for the Jewish community. Throughout its history, the Segal Centre has supported emerging artists, providing them with opportunities to develop their work and reach the next steps in their careers.

The Segal Centre’s Jewish Arts Mentorship (J.A.M.) is an initiative created to help theatre makers foster skills, gain knowledge, build artistic community and receive valuable professional networking opportunities. 

The program seeks to support emerging theatre makers of any age who are working on projects with Jewish themes or who are engaged in issues of Jewish identity. Three to four candidates are chosen per cohort.

The program includes one-on-one artistic mentorship, group discussions about Jewish identity and the arts, and final presentations by each artist. This year, J.A.M. will run for seven months (November 2021-June 2022).

Deadline to apply is October 25, 2021.

We welcome candidates of diverse backgrounds and intersectional identities. This could include but is not limited to people from racialized communities, interfaith families, LGBTQ2+, gender non-conforming and people with disabilities. We are looking for artists who are passionate about their work and enthusiastic about this mentorship opportunity!
