Gabriola Live is a celebration of the performing arts on Gabriola and a fundraiser for the Gabriola Arts Council. Open to ALL the performing arts and showcasing artists like you. We have funding to produce a number of events focussing on Gabriola talent from this October until March of next year. Multiple venues, a variety of ticket prices starting with some shows being free. No matter the ticket price, performers will get paid, we pay for the venue, the tech, front of house, promotion, and ticketing. You concentrate on your art form and get a guaranteed paycheque.
Gabriola artists, we want to hear from you! Musicians, actors, dancers, performance artists (jugglers, comedians, a painter creating to music, spoken word, puppetry, the list goes on).
You have to live on Gabriola (Mudge or DeCourcy) to apply and we are keen on new collaborations. But we understand that some of your act might live off island. The lead person must live on Gabriola and 50% of the performers must live on Gabriola, so if your drummer lives in Nanaimo….it is ok to apply.
If you’d like to apply to perform as part of Gabriola Live (October 2021 – March 2022), please fill in the application. We endeavour to showcase as many performers as possible.
Applications will be accepted from September 1 – 15th at 5pm. On the application you are required to give us a range, in dollars, for your performance. If you are producing a play and you have a director, 3 actors and rehearsal time….tell us that number. We cannot cover wardrobe, licensing fees, transportation, equipment (except what we have or can rent for you), or sets.
Any questions….contact the Project Manager, Dave Teichroeb firstname.lastname@example.org . Artists will be contacted no later that Monday, October 4th.
We are looking forward to reading what you propose!
APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED. Please email Dave for any questions.
