CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Creative Co-Collaborator/One on One Mentorship Opportunity

Each year the Expanse Festival brings together a diverse ensemble of emerging dancers and physical theatre performers to create and perform under the collective title The Lobbyists. The Lobbyist collective works together with Expanse Outreach Coordinator Amber Borotsik to create and perform site specific works both in and around Edmonton (sometimes outside) and in the lobby of the ATB Financial Arts Barns as a part of the Chinook Series.

This year we are seeking one Creative Co-Collaborator to work with Amber Borotsik. This is an opportunity for one on one mentorship in creation, facilitation and project management. The chosen applicant will, among other things, be tasked with the creation and direction of an original, site specific work for an ensemble of emerging performers. Creating in community is a key theme of this project.

Although specifically tailored for emerging creators, this is a paid, part-time position with flexible hours in advance of performance dates. The selected applicant should expect early meetings to begin mid-December and work in earnest to begin January 2021.  The Chinook Series runs from March 25th to April 4th, 2021.
