ICYMI - There’s an all-new national Professional Development Program for Comedy Artists & Workers, and it's FREE!

Attend the next event via livestream from Yuk Yuk’s in Halifax, Feb. 26 th .

The CANCOM Comedy Symposium is a new initiative funded by Heritage Canada and is the first time EVER that federal funding will go toward a national program for comedy artists & workers. (!!!)

This is a unique opportunity to have a Canada wide platform for meaningful dialogue around the biggest concerns and questions that truly impact everyone in the comedy industry, no matter the stage of their career, with a goal of education and positive change

In total, six 90-minute live-streamed events will take place live on comedy stages across Canada. Each event will feature comedian-inspired discussions and resources around the topics that impact everyone working in comedy in this country - no matter which genre & at every career stage.

The next session is scheduled for Sunday Feb 26th and is hosted by Nikki Payne. The focus is on IP & Branding - focusing on such things as building your 'brand', marketing & sponsorship strategies plus learning who is in control of your intellectual property (IP).

The sixth and final session will take place on Sunday March 26th hosted by Martha Chaves and will be centred around Investment, Funding & Development - Fnd out what streaming services and broadcasters are looking for in terms of content, and how to pitch each of them properly. What other funding resources and platforms exist for Canadian comedy creators that aren’t NFTs?

Previous events included:
- Star System & Digital Reach
- Touring & Showcasing
- Pro-Health/Anti-Opression/Anti-Competition

To see replays of all sessions go to https://comedysymposium.virtualvenue.ca/#/authentication

Posted @withregram • @jrgartssociety Following the success of 2021’s inaugural Disability Atlantic Arts Symposium, The JRG Society for the Arts is thrilled to once again partner with Theatre New Brunswick to bring you an accessible evening of entertainment and community-building. Hosted by Brian George, this event will feature a lineup of artists who identify as Disabled and have a wide variety of practices. Come for the drag and the drama, but stay for the comedy, poetry, live painting, and so much more! This event will also function as an opportunity for artists who identify as Disabled to come together and connect with one another across disciplines. This event is 18+ and masks will be mandatory. Performers announcing soon. Tickets by donation.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: In the upper left corner, there is an orange logo that contains a camera aperture, eighth note, pencil, and paintbrush in a small circle. Overlaid over this logo is black text that reads: “JRG Society For the Arts.” In the lower right corner is large white text that reads: “2023 JRG Cabaret. February 20, 2023. The Bus Stop Theatre. Halifax, NS.” All of this is on a white and hot pink background, with the two colours broken up by wavy lines of bright yellow and blue.]

Streaming events online is easy at the Bus Stop with our in-house video equipment. Livestreaming is a great way to reach a wider audience outside Kjipuktuk, and can address many accessibility considerations as well! If you have an upcoming rental with us, this workshop is a great introduction to streaming options, capturing beautiful sample material for grants and demo reels, or upgrading your archival footage. Open your imagination to hybrid staging, with video and live performance working together for your adventurous production!

The BST kit is also available to rent and be used beyond the theatre walls. This workshop will go over the gear’s capabilities both in the theatre or on set, and share guidance on how to build your own straightforward kit.
