#CdnCult Times; Volume 1, Edition 10


This is the final edition of the first volume of The #CdnCult Times. It seems appropriate that each author poses some big questions about what happens now moving forwards.

Sarah Garton Stanley and myself address the question directly by discussing what we hope SpiderWebShow will be and do moving forwards into V2. Jacob Zimmer looks forwards in his post on funding for the Rhubarb Festival and what this means moving forwards in terms of advocacy. Zoe Sweet recounts how a Suzuki workshop challenged her expectations and how that could be extrapolated to how we practice theatre in a way that pushes the medium forwards.

Here we are at the end of 2013 and our first volume looking forwards to new possibilities and new approaches to theatre. Thanks to everyone who has engaged with us so far and we hope you will continue to challenge us to keep our own standards high.
