You’re invited to have your voice heard at Dream Big North 2017 – taking place December 4-6, 2017 at The Citadel (304 Parliament St.) in Toronto.

Dream Big North is a theatre summit that will gather professionals from the provincial theatre community to create and encourage relationships between rural and urban theatre producing companies and organizations through dynamic facilitated networking sessions and discussions. Conference programming will include a Creators Exchange, a low-pressure pitch session for artists facilitated by the Playwrights Guild of Canada. The conference will also host two panel discussions: The Dynamics of Urban and Rural Theatre in Ontario and New Models for Provincial Interaction.

Dream Big North 2017 is proud to partner with organizations like Pat the Dog Theatre Creation and The Proscenium Club to present two special full-length showcases of new theatrical works by artists from Northern Ontario.

The opening night showcase will be Streetheart by Sarah Gartshore. Streetheart shines a light on one of the most marginalized groups of people in any city – the homeless. The show is based on conversations that the playwright had with homeless people in Sudbury, Ontario.

The on the closing night of the conference, The Proscenium Club, a theatre troupe hailing from North Bay, will be showcasing their newest touring work The Life and Death of John the Milkman written by Joshua Bainbridge. Set in 1959, the play tells a story about four women who are ready to claim their rights, their identities, and their own independence, at any cost.

Meetings with stakeholders on next steps to take place during the day on December 6th along with an additional performance of The Life and Death of John and the Milkman in the evening.

With the current success of the arts on a federal level within Canada and the shifting climate of the arts within the province of Ontario, new relationships can be explored leading towards new dreams of a better tomorrow within the arts. Have your voice heard and explore these collective futures with us at Dream Big North 2017!
