  • On Wednesday, I attended the grand opening of The Theatre Centre’s new permanent home in Toronto.  At arts organizations, we talk a lot about “how do we demonstrate the impact of what we do?”  Walking through the new building, seeing all of the people in attendance excited for the celebration, being part of an audience rising to its feet to give a standing ovation to Franco Boni as he walked up to the podium and before he said a single word—for me, that’s what impact looks like.  That’s showing, not telling.  Congratulations to everyone at The Theatre Centre who made it possible.
  • Shaista Latif received a Professional Theatre Training Program grant to train in directing with Nina Lee Aquino.  She writes on the Buddies In Bad Times blog about her own story of migration and adaptation.
