Inkling Incubator

Red Dress Productions

The Inkling Incubator is a Red Dress Productions (RDP) interdisciplinary research project that will convene a diverse working group of Deaf, disabled, hearing, and enabled artists for two five-day intensive, arts-based research workshops.

What arises when Deaf, disabled, hearing, and enabled artists collaborate at the ‘inkling’ phase of a creative project and experiment with creative problem-solving? What strategies can be woven into artistic processes from the start of art-making to increase inclusion, access, and equity for both artists and audiences?

Led by specialized knowledge facilitators, together we’ll explore, experiment with, and develop best practices and processes in integrated and inclusive creative collaboration.

Workshop dates and location
Applicants must be available for all of the times and dates in one of the two workshop cohorts:

Cohort #1: January 7–11, 2019
Cohort #2: February 18–22, 2019
Location: Cahoots Theatre (388 Queen Street East, Unit #3, Toronto)
Time: 1:00–5:00 p.m.

Who is this for?
Artists of all artistic disciplines who have an interest in creating artwork that reflects the multiplicities and richness of the communities it emerges from, while creating new creative communities and modes of working in integrated processes.

The Inkling Incubator will provide artist-researcher participants the opportunity to learn (and unlearn) from each other.

Recognition
Artist-researchers will be paid an honorarium of $1,000 for participating in one of the two cohorts of the Inkling Incubator and will be credited in workshop findings.
