Developing the inspired Indigenous voices of tomorrow

Who we are

The Centre for Indigenous Theatre is the only school of its kind in Canada. We seek to train you, the future Indigenous artist, to become tomorrow’s inspired and passionate Indigenous voice.


What we offer

We offer three & four-year full-time conservatory-style, post-secondary training prioritizing Indigenous culture; foregrounding the Indigenous theatre canon and prioritizing Indigenous knowledge, culture, language, values and practices.

Where we are

We are located in the heart of downtown Toronto, Ontario, in the Yongeplace Artscape Building on the second floor.

How it works

How it works is? You’re an Indigenous person looking to train in Theatre and Performing Arts. You contact us and we start a life changing conversation about your future.

Become a student

We have five key components enabling you, the students, to acquire and refine your skills incrementally through: core classes, specialized workshops, independent creation based on story weaving technique, mentorship, and performance.

We are a school
and more than a school.

CIT co-funds not only a student’s education but also provides support for transit, living & housing expenses. So, the better-funded we are, the more opportunities we can create for deserving students.

We need donors like you,
to step-up up and help us continue to
create opportunities for students.
