About the Program

Stage One – Week of January 24, 2022 – Week of March 7, 2022 (7 weeks)
Exact days and time TBD.
This program will take place over Zoom.

What would the “you” of the future say to the “you” of the present in order to support you through this particular moment in time?

HINDSIGHT is a solo performance and interdisciplinary art project for IBPOC youth ages 15-19. Young creatives who self-identify as ethnically and culturally diverse, of Indigenous, or of mixed-racial heritage will join our professional artist/instructors and bring to life your story of this time.

In a series of seven weekly online sessions, participants will learn aspects of solo performance creation including elements such as story structure, character development, narrative and more. With the help of guest artists from our creative community, your story is refined and defined to become a powerful narrative, clearly told. Guest artists have included Carmen Aguirre, Veda Hille, and Sophy Romvari.

Stage two of this program will invite those students with strong narrative work to further develop their piece online and in our studios throughout the spring. Professional support and mentorship will be offered in areas ranging from filmmaking, to song writing, to choreography, and anything in between. The journey ends with a curated presentation of these powerful stories at our Granville Island facility.

Who Should Apply
HINDSIGHT is designed to nurture the creation of IBPOC stories from our community. Youth from across the province of BC are welcome to apply. No previous writing or performing experience necessary. If you self-identify as Black, Indigenous, or other person of colour, or you are of mixed ethnicity and you have a story you feel inspired to tell, we welcome your application. If you are willing to connect, show up, and take risks then you are welcome in this program.

Participants must be 15-19 years of age, and must commit to attending every session.
