NOW Workshops are designed for individuals with varied abilities and experiences and offer safe environments for the creation of music - instantaneously and joyfully. Workshop facilitators communicate their ideas about improvisation with musical experiences designed to created new opportunities for collaborative exploration. We help musicians develop vocabularies of improvisational language, introducing a variety of techniques and compositional structures. We encourage the channeling of influences from a number of traditions and cultures while encouraging the development of individual voices.

We gratefully acknowledge that we are making music on traditional and unceded Indigenous lands, uninvited guests, of the the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and səlil̓wətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

The NOW Society is committed to creating equitable and safe(r) workplaces within the performing arts.
We support and adopt the We Have a Voice Collective Code of Conduct.
