This project will be featured as part of the Alchemy Festival, the Geoscience conference (July 3-7) and World Stage Design Conference (August 6-16th).
What we're looking for

For the Audition
Please present a 1-2 minute contemporary monologue and share a story about you and science. Could be an anecdote about Grade 11 chemistry class, maybe your at-home dissection of a spider when you were eight, or your life-long fascination with quantum physics. Should be personal, and no more than 3 minutes. Should make you smile 😊
