RBC Emerging Artist-in-Residence

With support from RBC, 2b hosts Emerging Artists-in-Residence who are given extensive mentorship, and integrated into 2b’s processes and projects.

Student Rep Program

Student reps serve as a vital liaison between the company and the Halifax university community. Responsibilities include coordinating student communications and events, facilitating talkbacks with artists, and promoting 2b and its events and productions on and off campus.

The Colloquium

2b theatre company shares an office space and an espresso machine with Live Art Dance and Secret Theatre. It was important to us that it become something more. The boardroom was given the name the Colloquium, and the idea of hosting regular meetings was started. The purpose of the Colloquium is to foster better conversations about art-making.


2b presents professional development workshops for the professional artistic community to promote the development of artists in the region. This year, 2b presents three professional development workshops under the title The Creative Toolkit Workshop Series, funded in part by a grant from the province’s Community and Youth Activities Program.
