Attention young artists! Do you feel that your community doesn’t offer enough opportunities for you to showcase your art? Are you looking to make connections with other artists in the community? At VOICE, we’re committed to helping with just that! We realize that it can be difficult for youth to participate in the vibrant arts culture we have here in Peterborough, either because most events are adult-oriented or because you just don’t get the recognition you deserve. Our event will offer a platform for youth to share their art with the community and learn about networking with other artists. We are accepting pieces from youth ages 10 to 25 in these disciplines:
Dramatic Art (monologues, skits, improv, etc.)
Performance Art (spoken word, comedy, etc.)
Dramatic, performance, and musical pieces should be no longer than 10-15 minutes. You may submit art with mature content, but all pieces will be screened by a panel before they are admitted into the showcase. We encourage you to submit as many pieces as possible created by youth in the community (i.e. songs and performances created by local youth)
The event will take place at Millennium Park on August 5 from 1pm to 4pm.
The deadline for submissions is July 6th. To apply, email us a photo or video of your submission at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us a little bit about yourself and your work. We will go through all submissions and get back to you by July 20th. Thank you for your time and your talent!!
(Space is limited and all submissions are subject to approval.)
for the Family Day Event!
We had a great time!
