Summer will soon be upon us! As part of our Radical Access pledge goals from 2020, we are committed to creating a Summer 2021 Young Company of Nova Scotian performers, creators, and technicians to help run our summer programs and gain valuable professional experience.
Successful applicants will be hired for 8-14 weeks with varying responsibilities including performance/production opportunities, assisting with HAT Academy summer classes, assisting with our Radical Access Year Two fundraising campaign, and more! Work placements will be personalized for each participant, pairing them with organizational leaders best matched to provide meaningful experience and training as well as specified projects and programs designed for the entire company in a number of performance/production settings.
All summer programming is currently in process of confirmation, pending Nova Scotian restrictions on gathering limits.
Applicants must be between the ages of 16 and 30 and must have held permanent residence in Nova Scotia for the past year or be originally from Nova Scotia, living elsewhere for educational purposes.
