Springboard is a non-profit organization devoted to connecting artists, mediums, audiences, the body and the mind through physical contemporary creation and public space manipulation.
Springboard bridges disciplines with clustered festival programming, creative residencies, workshops, lectures, performances and round table discussions. Springboard champions exploration of physical contemporary practices; in deepening understanding of art and ideas, and supports the aesthetic risk-taking that challenges both artists and audiences with new ways of seeing, representing and responding to contemporary life.
Springboard Performance, in partnership with Hillhurst Sunnyside Community Association guided by the Bow to Bluff Initiative for place making, the AREA, and the Permaculture Guild, propose to enrich the urban landscape of Sunnyside in Calgary.
