Festival Administrators

About

The Festival Administrators program is designed to increase the administrative capacity and confidence of its participants while mimicking the experience of working professionally as an arts administrator at a theatre company or arts organization. Festival Administrators gain hands-on leadership training in this program made for young people, led by young people. Festival Administrators engage with the Festival as creative thinkers, planning community gatherings, fundraising events and promotional projects to ensure the success of the festival for its participants and audience.
