Showcase 2013: Kindling and Creative Catalystskindling
"We must be the change we want to see in the world"
Pushing the Boundaries of Performing Arts for Young Audiences
kindling is an exploration, celebration and illumination of artists, individuals and creative organizations pushing the boundaries of performing arts for young audiences.
kindling is a curated program examining and highlighting exemplary creativity and innovation that raises above common practice and aspires to spark inspirational wildfire throughout the creative community.
kindling provides an opportunity for the IPAY membership and community to intersect with big ideas, ongoing dialogue and artistic exploration not currently being investigated on a national platform in North America.
kindling intends to inspire IPAY members to ignite their own local creative revolutions through their involvement in deconstructing global innovation.
The premiere edition of kindling at Showcase 2013 is curated to provide a framework for future kindling programs while fulfilling the objective of illuminating global best practice and innovation. The focus of the kindling 2013 is on Creative Catalyst organizations.
Kindling 2013 will inspire IPAY members to initiate localized programming in support of emerging performing arts for young audiences. Modeled after local food movements, such as the 100-mile menu, and the rise and success of the microbrewery industry in North America, kindling 2013 will focus on five Creative Catalyst organizations that have an impact on performing arts for young audiences through their localized initiatives.
Kindling sessions at Showcase 2013 will be varied in format and will include engaging interviews, facilitated dialogues, and topic-specific interactive workshops with artistic and administrative leaders from the five Creative Catalyst organizations. Showcase delegates will gain firsthand insight into the nuances of each of these organizations and their programs, the reach and depth of their work, and will engage with the passionate artistic and administrative leadership that guides them.
