Top Canadian Artists to Attend Pitch Session at Edinburgh Festival Fringe
Ottawa, June 23, 2022
The Canada Council for the Arts, the Department of Canadian Heritage and the High Commission of Canada in the United Kingdom are pleased to announce their support for Canada’s artistic presence at the Edinburgh Fringe 2022.
Further to a call for submissions held in May and a peer-curated selection process, eleven extraordinary productions will be showcased at Spotlight Canada: The Pitch Session.
This exclusive in-person event will take place on Monday, August 22, 2022. It will feature five-minute pitches by the selected projects, as well as a Q&A with the artists and a moderator, for an audience of international producers, artistic directors, festival curators, presenters, and programmers from around the globe.
After two previous online editions, this is an exciting time for top artists from Canada to gather again in person at the world’s largest arts festival. It is a unique opportunity to expand their touring prospects and develop creative partnerships.
Congratulations to the artists and companies featured as participants in Spotlight Canada: The Pitch Session
