An Incubator for New Work

“Tomorrow’s Best Today”

“The SpringWorks Festival is an ideal place to experiment and workshop, to expand your audience, to develop an idea and to broaden your artistic community. It offers all parts of the foundation needed to present a new work and is a hotbed of exciting and vital art of many mediums. I am so grateful that it exists and so grateful for its generosity to young artists like myself."
Britta Johnson - Life After; Stupidhead! (A Mucisal Cmoedy)

How are we Working on this NewWorks thing:

  • By inviting artist/creators to reveal work in all stages of development 

  • By asking questions about 

    • the creative process

    • Our stories - Whose stories

      • Ownership, commitment and responsibility 

    • what is “safe” space

  • By reaching out to and building relationships with Indigenous, Ethnocultural groups, Youth, and Seniors, our wise ones

  • By connecting with the national and international arts organizations and communities that are sharing their stories - learning from example

  • By offering both free and affordable programming experiences

  • By evolving with the rest of the world as it embraces a digital future

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • YouTube
  • Instagram

The Oneida and Chippewa Nations of the Thames, Kettle Point and Stony Point, and the Saugeen and Munsee Delaware Nations, are the traditional custodians of the land upon which we stand.  These peoples’ cultures and customs have nurtured the earth, since the beginning of human experience.
We must continue to nurture this land and protect the future together, honouring the wisdom of ancestors, respecting, and respectfully learning from each other.
