Hungry for Productions? Trying to Find the Right People to Work With?
The Director/Playwright Exchange is an initiative of PGC, inspired and brought to us by the Dramatists Guild of America. For this event, ten directors and ten playwrights will gather together. Participants will have the opportunity to talk briefly about what kind of work inspires them, and how they like to collaborate artistically, the purpose being to encourage networking opportunities with other practitioners, and to forge new working relationships.
Interested participants should submit two paragraphs (no longer than 250 words each). The first should be a brief Bio outlining your professional accomplishments to date, while the second should provide a personal Statement of Purpose that shares your artistic passions. Please write in the first-person, offering a window into your own unique artistic point of view. Why are you a theatre creator? What sort of work excites you? How do you like to work, and with whom? Etc.
Participation is limited, so apply now! Interested participants should forward their information to Jennie Egerdie, Project Coordinator for Playwrights Guild of Canada (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Wednesday April 15th, 2015. Accepted participants will be notified first thing the following week.
