The Savvy Sessions ran from 2017-2019 and were part of ELAN’s Performing Artist Market Access project. We offered free professional development workshops for Performing Artists aimed at enhancing the skills needed to successfully navigate a career in the arts. With a focus on Dance, Music, and Theatre, these workshops were open to all performing artists.

Partners & Sponsors

The Savvy Sessions are made possible with the support of:


We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.

Accessibility is important to us.

Thanks to the support we receive from Canada Council for the Arts, Savvy Session workshops are now free!

Without the support of Canada Council for the Arts, each Savvy Session workshop would cost anywhere between $80.00 to $250.00 per participant.
