#CdnCult Times; Volume 1, Edition 3


This week’s edition of the #CdnCult Times concerns those core factors that motivate us as theatre artists. What is is that pulls us out of bed in the morning? What influences keep us working long after we should have gone to bed? Where do we find meaning? Is it our work, our communities, our collaborators?

These pieces by our Geographic Correspondents, NAC English Theatre AD Jillian Keiley and myself all take a different perspective on art, meaning and making theatre. Please feel free to engage with us about what motivates you if you feel  inclined. Our comments section is now up and running.
