Theatre Projects Manitoba is looking to connect with the artistic voices of our region by hosting Artist meetings and General Auditions with in-person or online options. This is a chance to meet Suzie, our new Artistic Director, introduce yourself and your artistic practice, and to share how you might want to work with TPM!
This call is open to artists across the disciplines – performers, designers, writers, creators, directors, audio or visual artists, multi-media artists, producers, production folks and anyone else who wants to work on theatre projects with us.
Since Suzie is new, even artists and colleagues who have worked with TPM before are encouraged to book a time if you haven’t yet connected with Suzie about your work.
Performers are encouraged to share a short (under 2 mins) piece of their choosing. Directors, playwrights, creators, and producers are encouraged to pitch an idea or talk about a theatre piece they love and why. Designers and other artists are encouraged to share samples of their work. Everyone should come ready to talk about their practice and what inspires them creatively!
TPM is committed to creating a diverse, inclusive, and equitable working environment and we encourage submissions from members of all the diverse and intersecting communities that make up our region.
Meetings with Artistic Director Suzie Martin and Assistant Producer Key Caguioa will be approximately 15 mins and will be held in person at the MAP Studio or on Zoom (as requested).
In-Person Meetings: 10AM to 5PM Aug 31 & Sept 1, 2022
Zoom Meetings: Aug 30, 2022 (possibility for evening meetings)
The MAP Studio (5th floor, Artspace Building—100 Arthur St) is accessible by elevator and the Artspace building itself is accessible by chair lift—we are happy to provide more specific details about the physical accessibility of the space as requested.

Theatre Projects Manitoba is located in the heart of downtown Winnipeg on Treaty One Territory, and the homeland of the Red River Métis Nation. Manitoba also holds the territory of Treaties Two, Three, Four and Five and we are grateful to the knowledge keepers, storytellers, artists and makers from all first peoples of this land including the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, Dene and the Métis, for their ongoing relationship with and caretaking of these lands and waters. We acknowledge that settlers have often failed to uphold our part of the treaties of peace and friendship and we at TPM strive to be better neighbours, partners, and co-stewards as we move forward.
Theatre Projects Manitoba was founded in 1990 as an artist-driven organization and a theatre-at-large, using a variety of venues for performance locations. Committed to the cultivation of Canadian Theatre, in the past 30 years TPM has staged more than 50 new Manitoban works.
TPM’s goal is to develop, produce, and present theatre projects that stimulate imagination and empathy, creatively inspire our many intersecting communities, and provide challenging opportunities for the growth of the artists and audiences of this region.
