INNOVATORS & ICONS 2022 presented by the National Arts Centre and SHIFTER

As Canada’s stage, the NAC is partnering with SHIFTER to spotlight Canadian women of colour in live performance with its first ever Innovators and Icons lists. As a part of this groundbreaking article series, every month the NAC and SHIFTER will be honouring Canadian women of colour who align with the NAC’s various disciplines―Popular Music & Variety, Dance, Indigenous Theatre, English Theatre, French Theatre, and Orchestra.

These women are not only stellar live performers, representing the geographical and ethnic diversity of Canada, but they are pushing the envelope and breaking barriers in their craft, on the way to becoming Canada’s future stars.
