Canadian Stage RBC Emerging Artist Program


The Canadian Stage RBC Emerging Artist Program (formerly the Gymnasium Program or GYM) is a free program for emerging artists and arts professionals. Members are invited to free panel discussions and workshops led by guest artists and administrators on topics related to skill development and ongoing training. Members also receive our regular e-newsletter, The Relay, which includes workshop opportunities, ticket deals, show listings, job postings, and more.

“The RBC Emerging Artists Program is a wonderful resource. I receive regular newsletters with casting and job notices, and they also offer free workshops. I was really impressed with The Silent Performer workshop that I took recently.” – Nicole Fairbairn, program member
