Call for Submissions

The PuSh Assembly’s pitch session is back by popular demand! Artists, agents or producers who want to raise awareness about their works on tour, or projects currently in development, are invited to share their ideas with an audience of industry professionals, including international presenters and programmers.

A combination of the entrepreneurial ‘pitch’ and aesthetic dialogue, the PuSh Assembly’s Pitch session is an opportunity to make ideas reality: the flash point from where tours are booked, commissions are dreamed up, residencies secured and relationships struck.

Pitch sessions at the PuSh Assembly have resulted in several new collaborations in theatre, dance, multi-disciplinary creations and hybrid performance projects. Applications are open to Canadian and international projects in all performing arts disciplines.

Deadline for applications is 11:45PM PST November 30, 2015.
Successful applicants will be notified by December 7, 2015.
