Welcome teachers! There are a number of ways that your school can benefit from using the PERFORM! Program.
- Apply to have a professional performer teach your students for a particular project or workshop
- Apply to have a professional performer work with your students in a residency for a longer period over your school year
(workshops and residencies conducted virtually for 2020-21)
- Book a performance to come to your school (pre-recorded performances available in 2020-21)
- Request the one week intensive Christopher Norton MicroMusical Program to come to your school (not available in 2020-21).
PERFORM! keeps it affordable for you by subsidizing a third of the Artist’s wage for workshops and residencies and covering travel for all activities no matter where you are in Nova Scotia!
(For 2020-21 ONLY, schools will not be asked to cost share. All fees and travel will be covered by PERFORM until funds are depleted).
Deadline for applications: Anytime! Applications will be considered on a first come, first served basis.
Subsidies: On approved workshops and residencies, the $40 per hour artist fees are subsidized by PERFORM! at a rate of $15 per hour, until subsidies run out for the year. On Presentations and Christopher Norton MicroMusicals only travel and accommodation subsidies are available. (For 2020-21 ONLY, schools will not be asked to cost share. All costs will be covered by PERFORM until funds are depleted).
Scheduling: Applying one month in advance of activity is recommended. There is a two week turnaround for approval of applications. Once approved, scheduling can require some planning with the Artist.
