PARC is very excited to launch our new website with a redeveloped Online Catalogue of Members’ Plays, as part of a new initiative to further assist Atlantic Canadian playwrights in getting their work on stage across our Region and beyond. We have redesigned the Online Catalogue to better enable our members to present their plays, both produced and unproduced, published and unpublished, to potential producers, researchers, and the general public without any geographic boundaries. In the process, we have also rebuilt the website to make it more functional, user-friendly, and a better host for the new Online Catalogue.
The new Online Catalogue is:
- editable by current members at any time (upon approval by PARC’s website administrator);
- cross-referenced with the online listing of PARC's Script Library, a collection of Atlantic Canadian plays, housed on the Mount Allison University campus in Sackville, NB;
- easily searchable – by keywords and/or a combination of criteria, such as title, name of playwright, cast size, running time, and genre; and
- accessible by producers across the country and beyond, as a platform for ongoing promotion of your plays.
We have redesigned the website to make it easier to navigate for information. We have also streamlined the online membership registration and renewal process for your convenience. Throughout the fall, we will be adding content to the website and tweaking details of its design. Please bear with us as we finalize the construction of the new playwrightsatlantic.ca .
We invite you to explore the new website, the Catalogue and the online listing of the PARC Script Library, and welcome your feedback and suggestions. Please do not hesitate to email us at email@example.com with your comments or questions.
The Online Catalogue and website redevelopment is supported by the Industry Growth Program of the Nova Scotia Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage, as part of a new initiative to assist with the promotion of our members’ plays to potential producers across Canada.
