We are thrilled to welcome Josh Languedoc (NIFF 2022 Artist) to lead a virtual workshop on How to Fringe on Tuesday, January 10 from 12:00PM - 1:00PM EST.

Josh has been touring his solo performance Rocko and Nakota: Tales From the Land into theatres and festivals all across Canada (including our very own 2022 festival). He has many other works and also teaches around the Edmonton area with the Citadel’s Foote Theatre School, Edmonton Public Schools, Artstrek, Northern Alberta YMCA, and Workshop West Playwrights’ Theatre.
