CIRCLE OF VOICES PROGRAM

The Circle of Voices (COV) Program provides a safe environment to explore creativity. Its purpose is to assist aspiring artists in strengthening self-confidence and cultural awareness while developing professional skills, and provide an experience where youth can work with and among professionals in the theatre industry. Participants receive training in all aspects of theatre, attend workshops by local artists and COV alumni, attend plays, meet production teams and other theatre professionals in Saskatoon’s diverse theatre scene and l­earn the skills needed to put on a full-scale production. GTNT employs an Elder as a cultural leader, consultant and teacher who works with COV youth on language, personal and spiritual development.
