The Rose Brampton is now accepting applications from young Brampton artists interested in participating in the Centre Stage Conservatory.

The Conservatory is a professional development training program open to musicians, actors, choreographers, composers, rappers, comedians, and more.

The program is open to Brampton residents (as well as the surrounding areas) between the ages of 12 and 18, and participation in the program is free.

Additionally, those who have previously participated in the program are welcome to re-apply.

Attendees will participate in monthly workshops on a variety of topics including voice, entrepreneurship, technology, storytelling, and more, taught by leading artists/practitioners in the field. Participants will also develop and rehearse a final performance.

This year’s instructors include Darryn DeSouza (music), Yolanda Bonnell (acting), Markus Harwood-Jones (writing), Matt Zaddy (tech), Keesha Brownie (marketing) and Travis Knights (dance).

To apply, artists must submit a two- to six-minute video including an introduction, the title of the performance piece, and the author/creator.

“Brampton is a city of opportunities, and I am thrilled to see the return of the Centre Stage Conservancy and the opportunity to provide mentorship and opportunities for success to our young artists,” Mayor Patrick Brown said in a news release.

“Brampton has a thriving arts scene, and programs like this help develop our artists for future growth and success,” he said.

Applications are submitted via email, and the deadline to apply is November 29.
