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

In January and February 2019, the Inkling Incubator brought together a diverse working group of Deaf, disabled, hearing, and enabled artists for two five-day workshops at Cahoots Theatre in Toronto.

Led by specialized knowledge facilitators, we explored, experimented with, and considered best practices for inclusive creative collaboration.


Nineteen artists participated, were paid an honorarium for contributing, and will be credited in workshop findings.
