Are you full of enthusiasm...& want to make a difference?

Join the Youth Arts Initiative Council!

The YAI Council is a group of up to 8 young people, age 14 - 25, who are responsible for recruiting and choosing young emerging theatre groups and musicians to perform at the Saskatoon Fringe Theatre Festival. The Council assists chosen performers by offering workshops, pairing them with professional, and offering additional performance opportunities outside of the Fringe.

Council members should have an interest in supporting young artists but do not have to be performers themselves. Many different abilities come into play as the Council plans their own publicity campaign, do media interviews, design their own posters and promotions, and organize YAI events.

Want to perform at the Fringe?

After a couple of sessions working with a professional performer in your genre...

YAI Theatre companies will be integrated with the professional performers in our indoor Fringe venues. Each accepted YAI Company will receive six shows and one technical rehearsal in their Fringe venue. Companies will retain a minimum of 70% of their ticket sales.

YAI Music performers receive $150 performance fee for two 45 minute shows or $200 for three 45 minute shows located outside on the Fringe Street Free Stage in the Beverage Garden.
