Are you passionate about both theatre AND Restorative Justice?
We at Theatre of the Beat are interested in building a network of artists who are working in the criminal justice system in Canada, and/or who are interested in doing this kind of work. While rich professional networks exist for individuals doing rehabilitation through the arts in the US and UK, this is not the case in Canada... yet!
Theatre of the Beat has been facilitating a theatre program with/for inmates at Grand Valley Institution for the past several years. Having seen the positive impacts of our work at the prison, we would love to see more opportunities for incarcerated individuals to access the arts. We believe that part of growing this field must include collaboration between like-minded, applied theatre facilitators, and administrators. Please get in touch with us if you are part of a Canadian theatre company (or individuals) doing this kind of work, OR who are interested in doing so here in Canada.
