PSA #2 writing, drawing, looking, listening


A few things have popped up on my radar the past few days and I thought they were worth mentioning on a sunny Friday.




Theatre Ontario is looking to create a one week residential theatre training program where participants will audition for acceptance and then live on a university campus for a week while being taught by Canada’s top theatre instructors. The program will be for high school students only who are serious about becoming professional theatre artists. Please feel free to pass this questionnaire on to any youth you might know.

The Toronto Star is  launching Speak Your Mind in early September  It`s a forum for commentary, debate and conversation around the key topics driving the fall provincial election. They`re looking for two Community Correspondents from each electoral district in Ontario to cover the political scene, the candidates and the issues that are important to their area.  You can apply here – it`s a simple application.

Nomadic Residency is seeking people to participate in the creation of a newspaper. There are a variety of ways to participate,like filling out their survey, or answering one of the questions in their poster campaign, or writing an article, or making an illustration. More information is here, and the article from BlogTO  that drew my attention to them to begin with is here.

It’s the last weekend for the 2011 Summerworks Festival – you should go see something. Click here for some promo videos I posted last week, or click  for the  top ten shows according to torontoist.

TedXToronto has announced the speakers lineup for the Sept 23rd conference. I know who my highlights are. Apply to attend!

And finally we have an Akimbo hitlist from Yuula Benivolski, a Montreal & Toronto-based artist.

I`ll be posting this entry permanently in the PSA/What`s On section of the site as well. Happy Friday!
