Queer art. Queer space. Queer you.

Alberta Playwrights’ Network’s YOUth Riot – now in its fifth year – is a FREE opportunity for Calgary’s Queer youth to raise their voice and share their stories!

Over the course of 10 weeks, Alberta Playwrights’ Network and guest artists will facilitate a creative writing program for Queer youth, helping them learn skills, meet other queer youth, create, imagine, inspire. This is YOUth Riot.

YOUth Riot finishes with a public festival of short pieces created by the participants by and staged by professional actors and directors from the theatre community.

We want to hear your story.

●      14 - 21 year olds across Calgary are encouraged to apply for this free 10-week program where you will learn tools and skills from professionals in the Calgary arts community to help develop your own story and voice.

wordshed YYC - November 10/11

WORDSHED is a workshop program open to all members. Members are asked to submit their completed plays which are read by an APN dramaturg who then meets with you to discuss and strategize how best to use the 3 hour session with actors. This strategy is based upon the playwright's needs. Is there a character journey that you want to focus on? Do you want to look at plot? Theme? Subplots? Structure? Do you just want to hear the play out loud? It's up to you. For information or to register email - trevor@albertaplaywrights.com

APN OFFERS PROGRAMMING FOR ALL LEVELS OF PLAYWRIGHT, FROM NOVICE TO PROFESSIONAL

INSTRUCTION. ONE-ON-ONE PLAY DEVELOPMENT. MENTORSHIP. ADVOCACY. WORKSHOPS.
