The ensemble members who complete the Artist Mentorship Program come from various disciplines and backgrounds; they go on to do tremendous things with their craft. We keep in touch with them on a regular basis to see how their work progresses and contributes to the professional Canadian performing arts landscape. Black Theatre Workshop looks for every opportunity to foster strong relationships with these artists, finding ways to integrate their work into our season’s activities.
