We plan on welcoming around twenty artists/collectives representing the various performing arts disciplines (except stand-up comedy) through paid performances.

The artistic direction in consultation with committees, will pay special attention to projects presenting the work of Indigenous artists and those from visible minorities, as well as artists with disabilities and those who identify as non-binary.
