the METAs Mandate
The Montreal English Theatre Awards — METAs — are a set of peer-juried awards established to:
- recognize and celebrate outstanding artistic work in Montreal’s English Theatre;
- promote professional and emerging English theatre artists and companies in Montreal, and heighten their visibility, both regionally and beyond;
- elevate the level of critical discourse about theatre in Montreal, amongst artists and with the community at large.
The METAs are managed by a volunteer committee (METAC) of active professionals from various theatre disciplines, who oversee the running of the Awards and ensure the METAs integrity as a project “by the community and for the community”.
