The StartUp

The StartUp is an industry series at foldA (June 12-15) that introduces live performance professionals to what is happening and possible in the online age.

Through debates, discussions, hands-on workshops and keynotes with some of #cdncult’s most exciting creators, we’ll be wrestling with the question: what is live Canadian performance in the digital age?
