BTW Artist Mentorship Program

Black Theatre Workshop’s Artist Mentorship Program (AMP), launched in 2013, gives emerging theatre professionals the chance to work on a professional ensemble production. 

Based in Montreal, BTW is the oldest Black theatre company in Canada with the presentation of their first production in 1971 as the Black Workshop. BTW has devoted nearly fifty years  to the diversification and democratization of the arts in Canada. BTW is the longest-surviving and most established Black theatre company in Canada, committed to activities that raise social awareness, challenge mainstream forms, and celebrate artistic excellence. BTW’s continued impact on Canadian arts is further underscored by their ability to adapt as a self-renewing arts organization.
