Festival of New Works


Event details

Canadian College of Performing Arts:
Festival of New Works
The Festival of New Works is this week! The two-day festival is the culmination of the Year II mentorship program. Students apply for this extra-curricular with a project proposal. Each student is then paired with a faculty member to guide them through their artistic creation project, from preparation to incubation to final presentation. It’s a unique opportunity for students to take on a leadership role by guiding their peers in a field or discipline of their choice
And we are happy to introduce you to the line up!
