In 2019, dance: made in canada’s Wish You Were Here campaign had patrons sending postcards to friends and loved ones across the country, bringing our dance community closer together.
This year, for 2021, we would like you to create and write a postcard to your future self.
Our Wish I Was There project invites you to create an image that speaks to the present moment and write a note for yourself. Whether it’s things to remember when these trying times have passed, what you are looking forward to, or why d:mic 2021 can’t come soon enough, we welcome your individual contribution.
After you submit through the form below, we will put together and print your postcard, which will be mailed to you in September. You may also elect for your contribution to be part of a curated art-piece which will be revealed as part of our onsite Arts Encounters exhibition.
Feel free to write anything. A small team will format your image and note and you decide if your creation will be included in our Arts Encounters exhibition, or will be something special just for you.
Wish I Was There is part of the 2021 Arts Encounters programming, which includes off-stage ways of connecting with dance, artists, and community. This community project is produced by Sam Hale and Laura Cournoyea. Arts Encounters is produced by Sam Hale.
