TOTE Fest Calling for Artist Submissions

Posted on March 9, 2020 in General News, Member News

Welcome to Theatre on the Edge (TOTE FEST), Shuswap Theatre’s annual summer theatre festival July 17-19, 2020. We are dedicated to creating meaningful opportunities for performing artist’s to share their voices, allowing them to embrace risks in a fun and supportive environment. TOTE is hosted in the quirkily artistic community of Salmon Arm, BC., on the traditional and unceded territory of the Secwépemc people. Now in its sixth season, TOTE-fest has rapidly grown into a playground for emerging and divergent artists, to experiment with the work that they are passionate about for appreciative audiences who want something this side of ordinary, and we want you to be a part of it! 

We are open to all artists and to every kind of performing art you can think of!!!
The TOTE festival accepts applications between 30-60 mins in length from artists of all disciplines. Artists of colour, indigenous artists, and/or artists from LGBTQ+ communities are heartily encouraged to apply.


We are accepting applications to participate from now until Saturday, March 27 at 11:59pm.

If you are interested in applying but the application process creates a barrier, please contact us via phone 250-832-9283 or email totefestival@gmail.com.

Theatre on the Edge is scheduled for July  17-19, 2020 at Shuswap Theatre, 41 Hudson Ave NW, Salmon Arm, BC  V1E 4R4.
