We Create is a process-oriented festival that gives artists the opportunity to create original works around an annual theme during a period of 6 months. Artists meet twice during that period to share and discuss their process; the final work is presented at the We Create festival. We Create is a creative think-tank; its a school of thought that deconstructs old paradigms to provide fresh perspectives.
POSTPONED: Dance for Social Justice presented by Danza Orgánica
Dance for Social Justice is a process-based workshop that delves into the universal language of movement, to generate conversations and create art around social justice issues in our communities. Participants exercise solidarity through group-work, the exchange of ideas, and by engaging on intentional discussions. Through a guided dance composition process, participants explore basic elements of dance composition to create dance pieces with their groups. An informal showing, and a feedback/Q&A session, brings closure to the workshop.
