Her Words Creator's Bootcamp

We are excited to launch the Creator's Bootcamp to be held between Nov 24-26 as part of Soulpepper's groundbreaking Her Words Festival. 15 early career women and gender non-binary creators will participate in a 3-day bootcamp that will take their technical skills to the next level and introduce them to new peers and collaborators. Initiated to support the artistic growth of a new generation of women and gender non-binary creators, our bootcamp is a unique opportunity to learn from Soulpepper artists and industry professionals, build confidence in the rehearsal room, and make bold art!
