CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS!
We are excited to announce Pip Bradford & John Gzowski as the two artists that are receiving direct support from Theatre Gargantua under the Microgrant and Scholarship program developed by Canadian Stage in partnership with Theatre Gargantua and Native Earth Performing Arts.
Pip Bradford, who was the Production Manager for Theatre Gargantua’s production of Avaricious has received a scholarship in support of training in Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression to develop more equitable production practices.
John Gzowski, a long-time artistic collaborator with Theatre Gargantua, most recently on our main-cycle production of Avaricious, has received direct support for tuition for a course in composition/orchestration.
These grants are designed to support professional live performance technicians and designers in skill development, adapting and expanding their creative toolbox to meet new opportunities in live performance. Theatre Gargantua has been supporting and mentoring artists for over 29 years and value the sharing of accrued knowledge with future generations of theatre makers.
