Ignite! 2014 will engage 100 emerging professional artists and over 20 established professional artists in mentorship roles. Showcasing original work allows Ignite! to cultivate the creative spirit and exceptional talent of many young artists. The multidisciplinary nature of the festival attracts submissions that encompass many mixed mediums.
Ignite! will also offer a series of workshops on arts-related issues. These workshops are panel-style discussions designed to explore issues that face artists and the community that are generally not touched on in Calgary’s post-secondary institutions. Workshops are free of charge and open to the public.
Sage Theatre gratefully acknowledges the support of the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and the Calgary Arts Development Authority.
