Acting for Professional Film and Television

With award-winning actress Roseanne Supernault

For years, award-winning actress Roseanne Supernault has produced acting workshops specifically for Indigenous youth in remote communities and reserves.

Creatives Empowered has collaborated with Roseanne once again to create and offer an in-person version of her acting workshop for Alberta’s IBPOC community!

This workshop will take place over two days on Saturday, October 28 and Sunday, October 29, 2023, in Calgary – and will cover the craft of acting for professional film and television, as well as the business side, providing education and resources on head shots, bios, auditioning, talent agencies and casting.

Betty Tong from Betty Tong Casting will also be joining us to share her guidance and tips on accessing acting opportunities in Alberta.

Workshop participants will also receive a free headshot, courtesy of Alanna Bluebird!  Headshots will be taken on Sunday, October 29, 2023.

This is a free workshop, and available to a maximum of 14 people, on a first come, first serve basis.

No prior acting experience is necessary!

Participants must be Alberta residents, 18 years of age or older, and self-identify as Black, Indigenous and/or a Person of Colour/racialized.

Alberta residents living outside of Calgary are more than welcome to sign up, but are completely responsible for their own travel and accommodation.
