Keyano College art graduates are getting a chance to hone their skills here in Wood Buffalo.
RBC is donating $30,000 to the Keyano Theatre and Arts Centre through their ‘Emerging Artist Project’ so they can hire and support local emerging artists.
This will give graduates a chance to access technology, staff, and other resources as they gain experience in their field of choice.
“This is an exciting project that delivers real benefits for emerging artists, for our community, and for our theatre programming,” said Alan Roberts, Director, Keyano Theatre and Arts Centre, in a release.
RBC says the donation is their way of bridging the gap between emerging and established artists.
“We recognize that the arts play an important role in building vibrant communities and strong economies,” added Tana LeBlanc, Community Manager of RBC Fort McMurray.
The donation will help artists looking on improving their skills in design, costume, set, lighting, stage management, and directing.
