Launched in 2018, The Design and Production Program provides opportunities for LGBTQ2 and BIPOC emerging designers in Toronto to build skills, experience, and professional networks through paid work-learn opportunities and with the support of a dedicated professional designer mentor.

Participants can either take on a designer role for the AMY Project Theatre Program’s final production as part of SummerWorks Performance, or, can work as an apprentice with a professional design on a mainstage production in the Toronto theatre industry. This year participants will have an opportunity to work with designers from The Riser Project.

In all versions of the program, emerging designers are paired with a professional mentor and provided with resources to create beautiful designs in collaboration with other participants and artistic leadership.
