RBC Artistic Associate / Artistic Director Intern

Festival Antigonish is thrilled to announce Anat Kriger as our 2024 RBC Artistic Associate / Artistic Director Intern. Anat will be based in Antigonish and will collaborate with the Festival Antigonish team from January to August 2024. Thanks to the generous support of the RBC Foundation, this program is designed to empower and champion artists in their journey from “emerging” to “established,” offering dedicated funding and professional resources such as mentorship, talent development, artistic tools, access to new audiences, and opportunities for artistic collaborations.

Anat will be working closely alongside Artistic Director Andrea Boyd to enrich the theatre community in various aspects, including programming, the development of new plays, artistic outreach, and educational programs. We are excited to witness Anat’s contributions and creative energy as she joins our team!
