Assisting the next generation of theatre practitioners
FAIR is a professional development program that provides participants with an advanced fellowship, assistantship, internship, or resident opportunity to learn best practices across all administration, artistic, design, & production disciplines within a Tony Award winning theater environment.
FAIR is an acronym and represents the following:
FAIR’s mission and vision is to achieve equity within the Oregon Shakespeare Festival while creating, participating, and supporting efforts that sustain equity throughout the field of American theater. The methodology of FAIR is to create opportunities for the next generation of theater practitioners to have a collaborative exchange of knowledge, skills and perspectives with experienced professionals. The program is designed to honor OSF’s commitment to include diverse people, ideas, cultures and traditions in all areas of our work. In most cases, prior theater experience is not required for participation and people of color are strongly encouraged to apply.
Fellowships, Assistantships, and Residencies are offered on a competitive basis and recipients are provided round-trip airfare, complimentary housing, and a monthly stipend to cover their expenses. Interns do not receive stipends and are responsible for their own travel and housing costs. Applications are due July 1st every year for the following season. For example, if you are interested in participating in the program during our 2016 season you will need to submit an application no later than July 1, 2015.
