Four professional metro-Atlanta arts organizations announce the creation of a new arts apprentice company to serve up-and-coming arts professionals. The mission of the Four Directions Apprentice Company is to cultivate emerging artists by engaging, educating and enriching participants through an experiential learning training program.
The four organizations – 7 Stages, ART Station Contemporary Arts Center and Theatre Company, Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre Company and Out Front Theatre Company – will provide a holistic process with concrete experiences. This apprentice company was created through the desire of these companies to create an intersection of purposeful training using performance, administration, education, community engagement, equity, diversity and inclusion as five areas of focus. Over the course of a year, apprentices will serve in a variety of capacities by rotating through all four companies while working with a multitude of industry professionals.
Interested applicants should complete an application for the Four Directions Apprentice Company that can be found online here. Additionally, a cover letter, resume and list of references (at least three, both personal and professional) should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for applications is September 2, 2019. Any additional inquiries and questions can be directed to this email address as well.
