REDCAT’s year-round programming values artists who blur the boundaries between artistic disciplines, cross international borders in their collaborations, experiment with varied artistic traditions and invent or use new technology in developing new forms of expression. As many as 200 events are presented each year, including performances, screenings, exhibitions, discussion forums, family programs, and more.
