Performance Creation Canada is a nationwide network dedicated to the nourishment, management and study of performance creation in Canada, and the ecology in which it flourishes.

Neither a marketplace, trade fair nor traditional conference, PCC is an informal, multidisciplinary initiative committed to identifying and advancing the interests of work that is performed by the artist(s) who create it.

Modeled loosely on the Informal European Theatre Meeting, PCC is an inclusive network that invites the participation of artists, administrators, educators, presenters, producers, agents, archivists, critics and individuals from within funding and policy-making institutions. PCC is concerned with new art in the fields of theatre, dance, performance art, music and interdisciplinary practice. Any individual committed to the well being of the Canadian performance creation milieu is invited to collaborate with the PCC network.

Members meet in cities across the country twice annually. Inaugurated in Calgary, January 2004 PCC has since convened in St. Johns, Vancouver, Regina, Toronto and Whitehorse Ottawa, and Halifax.

The conference is open to anybody. Activities my include guest speakers, formal panel discussion pertaining directly to the theme of the session, discussions on the themes of PCC in general; as well as numerous informal opportunities to network, share ideas and socialize; and to sample performance work by local creators and companies.

Performance Creation Canada (PCC) will endeavour to identify and advance the multifaceted interests of a multidisciplinary definition of work that is performed by the artist(s) who created it. Modeled loosely on the successful Informal European Theatre Meeting, PCC invites the participation of artists, administrators, educators, funding institutions, presenters, agents, archivists and critics from the fields of theatre, dance, performance art, music and interdisciplinary work who are interested in the well being of the Canadian performance creation milieu.

Networking Mandate
Excerpted from the document Manifesto of the European Cultural Networks, Brussels 1997:

A network is:
* a group of individuals who all take responsibility for shared goals.
* a dynamic system for communication, co-operation and partnership.
