Spring Forward! connects emerging arts professionals

By Marie Claire Forté

In March, Elizabeth Chitty, Executive Director of the Canadian Alliance of Dance Artists’ Ontario Chapter (CADA-ON), presented the organization’s recent Professional Standards for Dance at Spring Forward!, a resource fair for emerging arts professionals in Toronto. Rossyln Jacob Edwards from Dance Ontario also gave a talk on current issues with the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada (SOCAN). Spring Forward! was presented by The Emerging Arts Professional Network, the Ontario Association of Art Galleries (OAAG) and the Provincial Arts Service Organizations Coalition (PASO). The fair was an opportunity for emerging arts professionals from all disciplines to network and meet representatives from arts councils and professionals from the fields of music, design, visual arts, architecture and dance. Noting that CADA-ON has recently joined PASO, Chitty remarked that, “the conference was considered a great success.”
