2020 Online Workshop Series


In response to the realities and restrictions of the COVID-19 Pandemic, in the spring of 2020 we deferred our Mainstage Series and moved our regular Workshop Series of new plays to an online format, continuing to support development and collaboration by artists as they connected through the Zoom video platform. In this way, we have supported the development of 10 new works by Ottawa creators, creating paid opportunities for 73 artists to work! In the process, we encouraged our artists to look for the creative opportunities presented by these challenges and discovered the accessibility benefits of working online, as well as the ability to connect with collaborators outside the city, province and country.
