Springboard Performance's containR, is an Art Park made of retrofit shipping containers which connects communities through art and creative ideas. It premiered at the Vancouver Winter Olympics where we featured Alberta artists to the world. containR has gone on to animate communities in Calgary at East Village, Sunnyside, Marda Loop, and Forest Lawn.
containR is a distinctly Calgary, vibrant meeting place and an experiment in cultural placemaking.
containR was awarded the Colin Jackson and Arlene Strom Creative Placemaking Award at the Mayor’s Lunch for Arts Champions, and has been featured at the IETM Conference (Bergamo, Italy), CINARS (Montreal), Calgary Arts Congress (Calgary), and York University’s Arts, Placemaking, and Policy Conference (Toronto).
