What: Sometimes the hardest step in a project is the beginning. You have an idea but it’s based on a tiny kernel; a feeling, an interaction, a dream. You know there’s something in there, but it’s hard to get from a to b. This Zoom workshop is designed to take your idea to the next stages of development; whether that be putting pen to paper, starting to gather a team, or finding a medium that can best support your vision. Germination is for collective dreaming, to nourish you for the future steps of your project.

Where: In-person at Halifax Dance or via Zoom
