ArtsBC Conference + New Contract Generator
CADA/West Executive Director Jessica Wadsworth is a Spotlight Speaker at the upcoming ArtsBC Conference in Kelowna Oct 17–19.
Jessica will be discussing the research and development of the new CADA/West online contract generator, reflecting upon two years researching better ways to represent and support new and evolving modalities in dance: site-specific works, non-dance presenters, co-productions, collaborative projects, culturally-specific needs and community-engaged projects. With the beta version of the contract generator to be launched very soon, we look forward to sharing this exciting new digital tool with artists, arts councils, presenters, institutions and governments.
There’s a federal election coming up on October 21 and Kate Cornell of the Canadian Dance Assembly has compiled some resources to help you vote and to encourage others:
- Voting 101: Everything you need to know about voting this October
- Canadian Arts Coalition: about the parties’ arts and culture platforms
- Vote Compass: explore how your views align with those of the parties
