"CAPACOA is vital to understanding the national artistic eco-system.  The conversations there inform my strategies and practices.  Furthermore, being able to learn about and begin to integrate indigenous arts and disability practices on a national level is an opportunity few other countries haves."

Dani Fecko, Fascinator Management

"CAPACOA 2017 was great in that I saw a very diverse set of performances and the professional development was very forward-thinking and seemed geared towards preparing for the future in presenting."

Skip Taylor, Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils
