Staging Displacement

Producing & Presenting Difference

The First People were displaced first, but we are all negotiating footing in a new place. How do we claim territory on stage?

This conference will look at displacement as a common ground for Aboriginal and immigrant theatre practitioners in Canada, and for art presenters who are seeking work that speaks to their communities. In collaboration with Performance Creation Canada (PCC), Cultural Pluralism in the Arts Movement Ontario (CPAMO), and Community Cultural Impresarios (CCI), IMPACT 11 will feature four days of panel presentations, discussions, and networking events with artists, producers and presenters from across Canada.
