CREATIVE INCUBATOR Call for Submissions


Good Women Dance Collective is accepting submissions for our new Creative Incubator series, a week-long creation workshop facilitated by local dance and theatre artist Amber Borotsik. Artists will bring their current ideas and interests and be able to work surrounded by the creative energy and input of their peers and community members. The Creative Incubator is open to all disciplines.

The workshop will run April 29 – May 3, 2019, between 9am and 4 pm at the Ruth Carse Centre for Dance (11205 107 Avenue).

The week will include facilitated exercises, sharing, and discussion between participants, opportunities for collaboration, and an informal public showing/sharing at the culmination.

Prepare to question and be questioned, to explore, to collaborate, and to find new and exciting pathways and processes for you and your work.
