Employing Stratford Festival artists as instructors, our goal is to train the next generation of backstage production artists.
About OFF THE WALL STRATFORD ARTISTS ALLIANCE
Since 2005, Off The Wall (OTW) Stratford Artists Alliance has offered a diverse series of summer courses and fall weekend workshops in theatre production arts that empower students with the skills required to achieve their personal or professional goals. Off the Wall employs Stratford Festival artists - and theatre professionals from across Ontario - as instructors during their off season. Bringing a lifetime of experience in backstage production arts to their instruction, the goal of these mentors is to share their knowledge with the next-generation of theatre artists. A registered charity, OTW is a pioneer in backstage production arts skills training, and continues to ensure community engagement in the arts. www.stratfordoffthewall.com @offthewallstrat
