The Festival of Ideas and Creation (FIC) is a gathering of Artists, Arts Practitioners, and Thought Leaders from a variety of disciplines. The Festival is built to be a responsive space to consider creative practices. It is a space for artists and audiences to come together, and interrogate and investigate that which is pressing, new, or challenging in artistic creation communities. It is a space that will build and feed the creative imagination of all participants, presenting engaging panels, workshops, and lively guided discussion groups. The FIC will build networks and enhance community connections, foster curiosity and imagination, and connections between artistic communities and Canadian Stage.
The Festival of Ideas and Creation: Digital Media, New Technologies and Performance will explore how technologies, as tools and modalities, can enhance, challenge, and broaden our practices as contemporary artists. The 4-day event will feature curated conversations on a variety of interactive platforms, including how new modalities can impact the ways that live performance creators tell stories and how digital works make an impact on their audiences.
