Outreach Intern – October 2017

posted in: Announcements | 0

Mixed Company Theatre has been producing innovative, socially-relevant theatre as a tool for positive change since 1983.

Founded as an artist-run collective, today this nationally recognized not-for-profit is known for their commitment to inspiring communities across Canada to create social change through the theatrical practice of Forum Theatre.

Our most recent initiatives include the InterGEN Project, a three-year program to connect seniors and youth from culturally diverse communities across the GTA through creative workshops led by professional artists. The tales of family, migration, and cultural displacement that arose from these workshops were developed into two full-scale theatrical productions, Shelf Life and Spring Moon, that received national coverage from CBC News and OMNI Television.
