What is the Flash Forward Incubator Program?

While presenting a new, and innovative model for arts funding in Canada, and as a true extension of high school arts programming, the Flash Forward Incubator Program prepares students for a successful transition out of high school, into post-secondary institutions and a for a career in the arts.

The program is distinct in that it bridges work completed within the high school setting with the professional world. It encourages students in the development of their artistic practice through a series of carefully crafted activities based on the experiences emerging artists would have as participants in the Flash Forward Photography Competition and the Ontario Secondary School Arts Curriculum. Students leave with the necessary documents required for a career in the arts, a signature piece for their portfolio, a professional gallery show and a publication to add to their resume.

This year, students from Rosedale Heights School of the Arts, Etobicoke School of the Arts, and Newtonbrook Secondary School our newest addition to the program, worked with the theme of inside/outside within the framework of architectural photography. This more complex theme allowed students to begin their conceptual thinking with the constraints of the project, and then expand their ideas and research towards their own personal connections, curiosities and responses to the theme. Throughout the program students engaged in both directed and personal research and used a wide range of materials, techniques and resources. Through our newly developed online community, students were also able to share resources and engage in feedback with students from all schools involved.

We are very proud of the work that our Flash Forward Incubator Participants have completed this year and are sincerely looking forward to seeing their work exhibited at TWIST Gallery from July 6 until July 30 — when the Opening Party and Silent Auction will take place. All work will be auctioned off to the highest bidder with all proceeds going back into the schools to continue to support the growth and development of their arts programming.
