Performing Arts Mobile Tech Kit

Pilot Program 

In response to COVI9-19 and its continuing impact on the performing arts, the Kingston Grand Theatre has developed the Performing Arts Mobile Tech Kit Pilot Program.  This is intended to help local Kingston artists to access equipment and develop the skills needed to document their work and to stream and/or publish their work online. 

The Performing Arts Mobile Tech Kit is available free of charge to any emerging or professional performing artist with proof of a Kingston address and can be borrowed for up to two weeks.  The Performing Arts Mobile Tech Kit includes all the basic equipment needed to record and/or stream content along with a User Manual and links to useful websites. 

A copy of the User Manual can be found here and a copy of the Loan Agreement Form can be found here.

The User Manual created to support the Performing Arts Mobile Tech Kit has been developed with the help of local musician Dave Barton.  Barton is an educator, studio musician, jazz guitarist, percussionist, private teacher, arranger and composer working in jazz, pop and classical music. He has performed with many of Canada’s great jazz players in concerts and on recordings and his compositions have been performed by the Toronto Jazz Orchestra, the Greg Runions Big Band, Brasswerks and the Queen's University Jazz Ensemble.
