The Afterword aims to give young creators a chance to share their thoughts about their current work and life – a snapshot that captures the shifting, evolving context of the arts in the time of COVID-19. We’re interested in the idea that in any sudden contextual shift within quotidian life, there are always words left unsaid, stories untold.
This project captures the thoughts, fears, hopes, and ambitions of 8 young Canadian creators. It is a chance to make peace with the world being left behind and imagine the world that is emerging.
The Afterword is co-produced by Wallis Caldoza and Madison Lymer. Videos are released weekly in the lead up to the festival.
