Gathering Knowledge, Sharing Voices: Touring in the New Normal

About the program
Based on our past work with Barbara Kaneratonni Diabo, Lee Bolton, and La danse sur les routes du Québec, Ontario Presents has developed a new, free program to support IBPOC dance and theatre artists who are seeking to tour their work within Ontario and across Canada. Participating artists are invited to participate in a peer learning community led by two mentors, Aria Evans and Nova Bhattacharya, in order to develop skills around touring and presentation, culminating in an opportunity to meet directly with Ontario-based regional presenters/programmers.

The artist cohort for spring 2022 was selected independently by our artist mentors, based on participant applications. The participants are:

  • Nada Abusaleh
  • Mushtari Afroz
  • Norma Araiza
  • Olga Barrios
  • Sofi Gudino
  • Krystal Kavita Jagoo
  • Mayumi Lashbrook
  • Raechele Lovell
  • Kate Kamo McHugh
  • Andrea Nann
  • Stacy-Ann Vassell
  • Purawai Vyas
