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.
