This year, our Artists at Work initiative offers a digital glimpse into the process and practice of artists working outside of the Canadian performance ecology. Experience global practices of creation, collaboration and new work development via SummerWorks’ digital channels. We’ve invited three curators from across the globe to put forward an artist they feel is essential viewing.

2022 Project Curator & Producer: Sue Balint
