YouCreate / YouShare

Forming a hub of artistic experimentation

April 13-27, 2021

The YouShare program will establish Youtheatre as a creative hub by offering the space as one of artistic research.  YouShare will highlight the strength and diversity of Canada’s artistic voices, and uplift Montreal’s creative community.  This will be an interdisciplinary space where established professionals and emerging artists can discuss exciting concepts, practice, meet new collaborators, play with technology, share knowledge and skills, and experiment with new ideas. 

 

The program can accommodate book clubs, artist talks, panel discussions, brainstorm sessions and workshops such as:

The YouCreate program will welcome teen artists into Youtheatre’s space.  By offering parallel courses in performance and digital arts, students will be equipped to become the world-shakers of tomorrow.  The courses will be led by creators with dynamic practices who are committed to arts education. The two streams will have collaborative sessions, providing opportunity for professional development and cross-generational exchange.

Digital Media Arts

Participants will gain introductory skills and experience with interactive computer programming, video, and sound. Each week will introduce a new technology, teach practical skills, and allow time for application with creative projects. Participants will experiment with how these technologies can be applied in performative contexts.

Participants in both streams will benefit from a meeting with a guest artist which will include presentations, specialized workshops, and Q&A sessions.  Both streams will discuss professional comportment in the arts as well as career management with information on auditions, unions, agents, grant applications, and more.
