JULY 24, 25 & 26, 2015
In celebration of our 25th Anniversary, SAMPRADAYA DANCE CREATIONS is organizing a three-day dance symposium in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.
This landmark project will focus on the emergence of new and unique ways of imagining the futures of new generation artists working in South Asian dance across Canada towards self-directed careers as they plan their place in the mainstream dance milieu.
This three-day event will include the following:
Beyond Boundaries: Imagining New Futures For South Asian Dance in Canada will address the needs and challenges of the South Asian dance ecology, understood in its wider context of ‘the artist in society’ and how it relates its multiple stakeholders. It will provide voice for practitioners who have remained off the radar of ‘mainstream dance’ and have faced systemic barriers in accessing support and opportunities. Our focus will be directed towards new generation and emerging professional artists and provide a forum for networking, professional development and engaging with their communities.
