Thank you for your interest! Applications are now closed.
We look forward to announcing the Winter 2019 cohort.

We are seeking 10 to 12 creative women of colour to participate in the Winter 2019 session of The Future. The program gives young women of colour opportunities to develop confidence, creative and professional skills and a network of like-minded peers and mentors.

We’re gonna have candid and challenging conversations; we’re going to learn from each other; we’re gonna eat snacks; we’ll be friends and mentors to one another. If you’re still curious about attending, these are the past participants in our first group in 2016 and second group in 2017.

If you have any questions about the program or the application, please email us at info [at]

** The Future is free. There is no fee to participate.

Who should apply?

  • You self-identify as a woman or gender non-binary.

  • You will be 19-25 years old at the time of the workshops

  • You have a creative or artistic practice (e.g. emerging writer/editor who wants to gain skills to publish their own magazine)

  • You’re interested in becoming a leader in your organization or want to build your own organization

  • You want to meet other like-minded individuals who are interested in the intersection of race and gender in the arts

  • You are prepared to attend all workshops. (Find more information about upcoming workshop dates and times here.)

  • You represent the diversity of our communities.

If you fit the bill, we'd love to meet you! 

Deadline to apply: November 22, 2018, 5:00pm.

Note: Space is limited, so please provide as much awesome information about yourself as possible. We want to build a group of 10-12 participants with diverse skills and experience.
