FemFest is pleased to announce details of the skill development workshops and special events that will be part of FemFest 2011. Since one of our goals is to support emerging artists, we always like to take advantage of the guest artists we bring to Winnipeg for the festival. It is a wonderful opportunity for local artists, or even those just interested in learning more about the arts, to gain new skills from professional artists. This year’s workshops include Neutral Mask, the Poetic Dramatic in Performance, Turning True Stories into Performance as well as an opportunity to hear an acclaimed national playwright read from her work and to learn about on-going mentorship opportunities.
As part of FemFest we are welcoming guest artist in residence Zena Edwards from the UK. She will be meeting with local emerging artists during her stay. It is an amazing opportunity to learn from an internationally celebrated artist.
