Artist Education Workshop Application
Thanks for your interest in facilitating a workshop! ***THIS APPLICATION IS NOW CLOSED*** But don't worry — we're hoping this will be an ongoing program, so stay tuned for more calls to lead workshops in the future. For reference, the application text is below:


A new collaboration between Patrick's Cabaret and Soo Visual Arts Center, the Artist Education Workshop series puts artists to work in new ways, creating an environment for peer-led, collaborative development, where artists can share their skills to help our communities grow and thrive.

For those of you who may be unfamiliar with Patrick's Cabaret, we're a queer-led performance art incubator supporting the growth and development of artists on the edge of culture. SooVAC is a nonprofit art space that connects our communities with fresh, under-represented and provocative art. This workshop series stems from our collective priorities to connect artists to educational opportunities, performance platforms, tangible resources, and to each other, to put their talents to work. These four sessions are intended to create an environment for peer-led, collaborative development.

Applying artists can be of any discipline (whether visual, performance, or anything in between) or level of experience. To help you with this application, here's a few qualities that we're looking for: (1) Artists who can lead a 1.5—2-hour long workshop, sharing skills that have helped them survive as artists; (2) Workshops related less to artistic content, and more to professional, business, and skills development (from applying to funding to creating safer arts spaces); (3) Because we support artists on the margins, workshops should center experiences "at the edge of culture." While we do have these guidelines, all are encouraged to apply and we will review every application in full.

Expectations: Once four artists are selected, they will individually meet (wherever is convenient for them) with cabaret staff, adequately plan their workshops, facilitate the workshop (sometime between mid-March and late-April), and receive $200 upon completion. We'll take care of the rest!

*The application deadline is Friday, March 3rd at 11:59pm.
