Boca del Lupo is now accepting applications for The 3.7% Initiative!
Named for the low percentage of key creative roles in Canadian theatre held by ethnically and culturally diverse women (including those of aboriginal or mixed racial heritage), this initiative supports women who have a strong desire to change that statistic by taking their performing arts career into their own hands.
Led by Boca del Lupo’s Artistic Director Sherry Yoon and Associate Producer Intern Ming Hudson, the group aims to build a strong and supportive community of diverse females who are willing to work together and create change right here at home in Vancouver.
Members of The 3.7% will benefit from peer-to-peer support and free programming such as workshops, local and national guest speakers, open discussions and cultural activities. Monthly meetings will commence in March 2016 and will be held at various spaces in Vancouver.
Are you a member of The 3.7%?
Boca is looking for women in theatre/performance arts who:
- Self-identify as being ethnically and culturally diverse (including those of aboriginal or mixed racial heritage). - Have aspirations to have a career working professionally and full-time if they had the opportunity.
- Have either finished post-secondary studies in theatre or have equivalent theatre training or experience.
If this sounds like you, and you want to be part of this timely initiative, apply today!
Application deadline: February 15, 2016.
