WHERE YOU ARE / WINTER INCUBATOR LABS AT CVAG
In the beginning of 2022, Where You Are / CVAG Incubator Labs provides an opportunity to activate relevance in our community through cross-cultural sharing, emergent artistic practice + professional development, creative residency, inquiry based research, and innovative experimentation + creation.

Two public programs at CVAG are connected to this sharing and development: Noojim Owin / The Gift of The Healing Dance; and Body Space Object. During the upcoming weeks, our programming weaves cultural practices, generational + gender divides, interdisciplinary research and discovery.
