B-SIDE SHORT-FORM

A FAST AND FURIOUS WEEK OF WRITING FOR ABORIGINAL ARTISTS

Initiated in 2013, B-Side is an Urban Theatre Projects initiative for First Nations artists to seed and develop new writing and paving the way for new work. During B-Side, First Nations artists work in close collaboration with one another and industry professionals to develop a short fictional essay/monologue, which is then recorded, post-produced, published on iTunes and programmed for radio.
