These workshops are a collaboration between Patrick's Cabaret, Pangea World Theater, and Soo Visual Arts Center. They reflect our collective commitment to connecting artists with resources, to each other, and provide them with opportunities to put their unique talents to work.
Applying artists can be of any discipline 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-hour long workshop, sharing skills that have helped them survive as artists; (2) Workshops related less to artistic content than to skills, professional, and wellness development (from applying to funding to curating safer 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. (Check out our website's event archive to find previous workshops: http://www.patrickscabaret.org/event-archive). Also note that your idea doesn't have to be fully fleshed out yet, but give us as much information as you can.
Expectations: Once four artists are selected, they will individually meet with Cabaret staff for ~30 minutes, adequately plan their workshops, facilitate the workshop, receive $200 upon completion, and submit a brief reflection so we can continue to improve this programming.
