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. In 2019, the Theatre Design and Production Program is supported by Inspirit Foundation and offered in partnership with lemonTree creations, Why Not Theatre, and Buddies in Bad Times Theatre’s production of Lilies: Or, the Revival of a Romantic Drama .

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.
