Beats + Intentions - an emerging inter-arts ensemble

Co-presented with Expect Theatre

Beats + Intentions is paid training and performance opportunity for emerging artists. 

This mentorship/employment opportunity builds skills in a variety of artistic disciplines: theatre, dance, music, spoken word, and video.

Youth also learn about the business side of the arts from industry experts: marketing, publicity, budgeting, outreach, auditioning, resumes, producing, reels/demos, agent representation, networking, and professional associations.

Selected through an audition process, participants engage in Business of the Arts Workshops, and then an intensive 2-week program in arts training which culminates in a showcase of their own original work. 

After the showcase, youth will work on their own project under the guidance of a mentor for 4 months.

Beats & Intentions is generously funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, Ontario Arts Council, Toronto Arts Council, Canada Arts Council, Toronto Pearson, and CIBC.
