We are very excited about the upcoming Ontario Contact 2012!
This year, Ontario Contact will take place in Kitchener, Ontario. Kitchener is a very interesting community at this moment as it commits to changing the profile of culture as a way to attract business and employees. This means that it is the place to be if you are interested in how a community can come together. So, you don’t want to miss Ontario Contact 2012!
Information about the passes appear on both sites. Pass C is the basic registration which includes your two networking lunches. Pass B adds the Awards Dinner and Pass A has all of the above plus the Closing Celebration.
Is Ontario Contact New to You? You can access the First Timers’ rate. If you know of a festival or series that doesn’t come to Ontario Contact, encourage them, let us know and you can qualify for a draw for a free registration!
As in the past, many of our more formal professional development activities will take place on Wednesday, October 24th. Plans are still underway so watch for details. Just a hint, the Facility Manager’s meeting will take place along with other industry specific opportunities to share with your peers.
Things you don’t want to miss!
Extraordinary Projects in Theatre, Dance & Multi-media Works – artists, agents and managers look for a Request for Proposal for Extraordinary Projects in Theatre, Dance & Multi-media Works giving the successful applicants an opportunity to meet with presenters and talk about a project you would like to get underway but want to ‘test’ the waters first to see if there might be interest.
Indie Showcases – in the works with City of Kitchener and Downtown Kitchener, opportunities for non-showcasing artists to be featured in local restaurants while delegates have their meals. More information coming soon!
Hot Topics - those quick and effective discussions for sharing new ideas, opportunities and knowledge.
Pitch Sessions - highly successful and always standing room only, we are offering these at The Registry Theatre with a little more tech support than we have given in the past.
