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.
containR is a pop up arts and culture hub for people of all ages – championing a 100-mile diet of creative community ideas – developed by Springboard Performance.
containR is the first city permitted Art Park in Calgary and the land it sits on the first brownfield (empty lot) to be returned to community use in the city.
containR is located at 1020 2nd Ave NW, Calgary, AB T2N 0E6
