Organization Expression of Interest due Friday September 10
Association for Opera in Canada is proud to be a national partner of World Opera Day, which will take place Monday October 25, 2021.
AOC will be producing an all-day event on October 25th, featuring our members with two segments of video content, and a live forum.
World Opera Day is an initiative led by Opera America, Opera Europa and Ópera Latinoamérica and supported by numerous international partners from the performing arts sector and national opera networks. It asserts the power of art to make people better emotional beings, better citizens, and that a healthy mind is as important as a healthy body. Its ambition is to reach a wider audience with this positive message. On that day, opera houses and the opera world have the opportunity to showcase the ways Opera engages with its community and can be an example of positive change.
World Opera Day has 3 themes this year:
Re-evaluated production models, taking into account eco-responsible choices
Recognising the diversity of citizens can be better reflected in the sector, in the workforce, on stage as well as in the audience
JOBS FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF TALENT
Preparing young artists and dedicated professionals for a career in Opera
Association for Opera Canada is inviting all of our members to participate with their own appropriately-themed, non-advertorial content:
(Professional Company Members, Associate Companies and Programs, Educational Producing Associates (University Programs), and Agents and Managers)
Let us know if you are planning a live event! We will direct international web traffic to your event as part of AOC’s official World Opera Day content.
Submit new or recent (non-promotional) video content related to any of the 3 themes listed above (Green Opera, Equal Opportunities, Jobs for the Next Generation). AOC will present a combined program of video and live content throughout the day.
