It could be a play, a performance, a digital work (for example: AR/VR, interactive game-based presentation, live or prerecorded virtual performance) or something hybrid in terms of language, discipline, or technology.

About Dramaturgical Collaboration at PWM

Dramaturgical Collaboration at PWM will include Dramaturgical Conversation and may also include one or a combination of the following opportunities to be determined mutually by PWM and the playwright/creator(s) according to the needs of the project: Workshops, Residencies, Mentorships, and Public Readings. A glossary of these terms can be found here.

PWM has numerous ongoing projects, including those delayed due to COVID-19 that the organization continues to be committed to. Therefore, at this time, PWM will be welcoming a limited number of new projects. In accordance with PWM’s strategic goals for outreach, we will continue to maintain the flexibility to reach out to playwrights/creator(s), and work that inspires us.

PWM is committed to creating an environment where all individuals are treated with dignity and respect.  We are continuously working to make all of our programs accessible and inclusive. 

PWM welcomes all applicants to our programs. While recognizing that the identity of each person is fundamentally plural, multidimensional, changing and evolving, we strongly encourage applications from artists who are: Indigenous (First Nations, Métis, and Inuit), Black, POC, racialized (including recent immigrants), 2SLGBTQQIPAA+, d/Deaf, neurodivergent, disabled, living with chronic illness and/or chronic pain. PWM is strongly committed to supporting a wide range of cultural identities and lived experiences, therefore we encourage applicants to self-identify in their application if they are comfortable doing so.
