Call for Submissions: Narrative Podcast
The Village Conservatory for Music Theatre is currently seeking submissions for a narrative podcast or audio drama, up to ten episodes in length. The series will be recorded starting August through December 2022. Prospective artists will work alongside the Artistic Director and Artistic Associate to execute their vision and in consultation with the Producer to determine artistic and technical needs for the project.
About the Project The Crescent Arts Centre will partner with the Village Conservatory for Music Theatre to produce three original podcasts, which will provide education, mentorship and creation opportunities.
The Crescent Arts Centre will commission emerging professionals to work with staff members at the Village Conservatory to develop a narrative-style fiction podcast. We define “emerging” as an artist who has 0-3 professional credits. This project will then engage both emerging and established Manitoban artists to provide the necessary vocal performances. This project includes hiring performers, creators, audio technicians, producers, as well as a director and editor, providing a variety of positions for local arts workers and opportunities for training and mentorship.
Applicants from IBPOC, 2SLGBTQIA+, disabled, and other underrepresented communities are encouraged to self-identify in their proposal.
