We have been missing the opportunity to work together in the Studio. So we have decided to move our Training Jams online for this season because we wanna connect and share!
Training Jams Online is our attempt to capture the essence of experimental play that occurs in the studio (that usually command human connection). New(to)Town Collective’s intention is to engage Beyond and Through the screens to catalyze a conscious re-connection to our bodies and psyches.
Training Jams are collaborative, interdisciplinary, and experimental workshops produced by N(t)TC. They are opportunities to cross pollinate training, practices, and ideas between artists of various disciplines as well as non-artists. We like to think of Training Jams as experimental art 'labs' where you can explore and experiment with your own curiosities free of pressures of having to necessarily create 'product'.
It's all about the process!
Regardless of your experience level there is always room to hone your craft. At Training Jams we offer space for exploration, curiosity, and to expand your artistic community.

Requested prep for those participating:
• A computer screen with a webcam or webcam capabilities;
• A space where you are comfortable in and have some room to move in order to do the work (we acknowledge that due to shared spaces during quarantine, you may need to adjust your participation accordingly. Please feel free to participate when you need to.); It is very relaxing and casual (aka stress free) doing this from our own spaces. Enjoy!
• To have some "front lighting" (ie could be a desk lamp or placing yourself in front of a window with natural lighting; love to see your face!)
All donations from our Training Jams will be sent to one of these efforts ( *DTES COVID-19 Relief Fund, *Unist'ot'en Legal Fund, *Hogan Alley Society Campaign) we are supporting. If you would like your money to go to one in particular, feel free to contact us and we will make that happen.

Let’s play together again, See You There in The Cyber Realm!
