Call for Submissions: Forward March Festival

Submissions are open for Theatre Direct's Forward March Festival!

Stand in the Place Where You Live is an ode to where we have come from and the land we call home. Four emerging artist companies and/or collectives will receive commissions of $10,000 to create a brand new and site-specific 30-minute-long Theatre for Young Audiences piece. COVID-19 protocols and precautions will be in place.

Following the online success of last season’s Forward March Festival: Spark the Future!, this year we venture outside and ask you to join us in a week-long celebration of our vibrant community and its resiliency during the pandemic. 

Festival Location: Earlscourt Park, 1200 Lansdowne Ave., Toronto

Deadline for Submissions: Wednesday November 10, 2021 @ 11:59 PM EST
