Call for Submissions – Producers’ Lab

Rumble Theatre is pleased to announce that we’re offering a new workshop opportunity this year: Producers’ Lab. Building on the strengths of our Directors’ Lab intensive, Producers’ Lab will be an immersive weekend of practical approaches to producing small-scale theatre.  

WHO: Intended for early-career producers, this workshop is ideally suited to those who are eligible for British Columbia Arts Council project funding and have a project that they are currently seeking funding to produce.
WHEN: Saturday, March 2 & Sunday, March 3, 2019.
Sessions will run from 10am to 5pm each day.
WHERE: PL1422 at 1422 William Street, Vancouver. 

About the Workshop
You will leave this course with practical tools for framing and pitching your work, in addition to techniques and tested practices for budgeting and scheduling on a small scale. This is also an opportunity to receive support on your provincial funding grant application and to engage in peer-to-peer conversation around producing needs within our sector. Rumble’s Artistic Director Jiv Parasram and Managing Producer Christie Watson will facilitate the weekend. The cost of the workshop also includes a follow-up copyedit of a portion of your grant prose with Director of Operations Kellee Ngan (via e-mail). 

Fees & Financial Assistance
Application is free. The participation fee for the workshop is $175 + GST. Rumble is able to offer limited partial bursaries for artists with financial and/or accessibility needs. To be considered for financial assistance, please include a brief statement in your application outlining how you would benefit from being awarded one of the bursaries. 

How to Apply
Applicants are asked to submit a short (no longer than one page) statement that answers the following question: Why are you interested in participating in this particular workshop? 

Please also indicate if you are intending to apply for the upcoming BCAC project grant. (Note: This is not a requirement to participate in the workshop—we’d just like to know beforehand how many people are working toward it.) 

We strongly encourage submissions from artists who self-identify as members of under-represented communities. 

E-mail your application (and your statement for financial assistance, if submitting) to  jiv@rumble.org  with the subject line: “Producers’ Lab application”. 

You can also send your application via mail to or drop it off in person at: Rumble Theatre, 1422 William Street, Vancouver, BC, V5L 2P7
