Inkling Incubator

A research workshop on inclusive collaboration in the arts

Upcoming: January and February 2019

Inkling Incubator

What arises when Deaf, disabled, hearing, and enabled artists collaborate at the ‘inkling’ phase of a creative project and experiment with creative problem solving?

The Inkling Incubator will bring together a diverse working group of Deaf, disabled, hearing, and enabled artists for two five-day, arts-based research workshops. We will be exploring strategies that can be woven into artistic processes from the start of art-making to increase inclusion, access, and equity for artists and audiences.

Led by specialized knowledge facilitators, together we’ll explore, experiment with, and develop best practices and processes in integrated and inclusive creative collaboration.

Participants

Eighteen artists from a wide range of disciplines will be participating. Each has an interest in creating artwork that reflects the multiplicities and richness of the communities it emerges from, while creating new creative communities and modes of working in integrated processes.

The Inkling Incubator will provide artist-researchers the opportunity to learn (and unlearn) from each other.
