March 25th shepherds in our month-long online presentation of POSTCARDS. Like its predecessor tapashta, POSTCARDS is a digital ShortWorks Festival Showcase where artists across all disciplines are tasked to express themselves on a singular theme. Thirty-three artists from across Canada and beyond have created seventeen videos, ranging from two to five minutes in length, creating a multi-genre viewing experience for you. From tap dance to music, poetry to puppets, these little gems are at times deeply personal, and always inspired. Videos will be available for one month, offering you tremendous flexibility as to the ‘when’ and where’ you watch. Grab a coffee/tea, dins or go for an immersive binge-watching break. Viewing is by donation - Pay-what-you-choose’ admission. Your support helps us provide accessible, inclusive programming and a platform for the development of new work.

This is a curated set of multi-disciplinary works on the theme of
