Call for Emerging Artists for the Eldertree Project

The Eldertree Project, sponsored by Arts Health Antigonish, is an opportunity for emerging artists of various genres to be involved in gathering stories from elders at the RK MacDonald Nursing Home and the Highland-Crest Home during the summer of 2014. In June and July, young artists will help to gather stories, and in August, they will work together with a team to transform the stories into a performance. The two selected artists will be offered a stipend of $1,000 for part-time work during the three-month period. They will have some experience of working with seniors. A background in creative writing, storytelling, or performance (music or drama), will be regarded as an asset. Young artists in their twenties or early thirties are welcome to apply.

Interested artists should submit a resumé together with a statement of interest to by May 23rd, 2014. Only those who are selected for interviews will be contacted.
