How We Do It
Springboard Performance curates the Fluid Movement Arts Festival, as well as all activities at containR and the Interrarium residency in Banff. With our small staff we champion and create first-rate innovative opportunities for art and its exchange.
Our partnerships are critical for sharing ideas and resources, for giving performing arts lovers the best possible experience and building a better playhouse for all to enjoy. So it is a priority to develop committed, cross-disciplinary partnerships that act as an invaluable mid-wife for culture makers across all art forms. Over the years we have established partnerships with Alberta Ballet, Banff Centre for the Arts, EPCOR CENTRE for the performing Arts, EMMEDIA, Y Stage, Theatre Junction Grand, Dancers Studio West, One Yellow Rabbit and Decidedly Jazz Danceworks just to name a few.
By installing containR in Sunnyside as a green arts and culture incubator year round we reach out to a broader base of collaborators and audiences. Through containR we’ve forged community partnerships that include Hillhurst Sunnyside Community Association, Bow-to-Bluff Placemaking Initiative, the City of Calgary planning department, The Calgary Permaculture Guild, Green Calgary, Kensington BRZ, CAWST and festivals like Sled Island and Beakerhead and Afrikadey.
By nurturing artists, thinkers, growers and local economies we grow too.
