DISCOVER THE RIPPLE EFFECTS OF A UNIQUE COLLABORATIVE ARTISTIC PROCESS IN FOUR ONTARIOS COMMUNITIES
Welcome! You are in the right place
Between January 2013 and July 2016 The Ontario Shebang unfolded in four distinct regions of Southern Ontario – Kingston, Guelph, Niagara and Burlington. Extraordinary artists and individuals from all backgrounds congregated and agreed to explore collaboration. Together we practiced listening, observing, sharing, exchanging, moving, belonging, relating and converging in unfamiliar ways. A unique community emerged from this process that demanded our presence, consciousness, courage and trust.
The Ontario Shebang was instigated by Dreamwalker Dance Company and is generously supported by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council – Ontario Dances program, City of St. Catharines, City of Guelph, City of Kingston and City of Burlington and by the artists and partner organizations who made it all possible.

This is our new meeting place where interaction can continue, and news, images, ideas or upcoming events can be shared. As you dive into the site you may start to see/hear/feel how The Shebang Process activates individuals to listen and respond to one another, how a single action can instantly inspire and propel a rippling response through an entire group, how simple intentional interactions can build lasting bonds and connections.
