Kindling at Showcase 2018
Kindling HOME at Showcase 2018
HOME is a programmatic exploration from January 2018 to May 2019, aligning with IPAY’s organizational shift anchoring operations and programming in Philadelphia.

Kindling at Showcase 2018 explored the multiplicity of HOME. Presenters from Scotland, Canada, Chile, Egypt, Sweden, the Netherlands, USA and Ojibwe Nation gathered to lead panels, discussions, and workshops throughout the Showcase schedule.

Kindling HOME 2018 explored the questions and ideas:

  • How are the performing arts for young audiences exploring ideas related to HOME?
  • How are artists exploring global realities of forced migration, homelessness, immigration and “newcomers?”
  • How does this relate to young people’s experiences in schools and their communities?
  • How do we honour the original caretakers of the land and what is our relationship with Indigenous people?
  • Who have we displaced in our communities? How do we welcome “newcomers”?
  • How is identity connected to one’s concept of home?
  • How does the idea of what home is differ around North America and around the world?
IPAY Kindling provides opportunity for dialogue sparked by guest thought leaders exploring connections to showcasing performing arts through critical response, kitchen table open dialogue facilitated presentations and informal discussions. An extended KINDLING global project exploring HOME in members' communities will be launched in June 2018. 

Dalija Acin Thelander Murphy and Brian Joyce were the Keynote Speakers for Kindling 2018 at Showcase. They shared their perspectives on the theme of HOME at the 2018 Annual Membership Meeting.
