#CdnCult Times; Volume 2, Edition 10


Welcome to the final Edition of Volume 2 of #CdnCult Times. It’s been a wild ride, and we are enthused by and grateful for all of the contributions from writers are readers alike. Stay tuned for a revamped approach to Volume 3 starting in late April.

This week, we explore the importance of space and creativity, but it might as well be called ‘The Good News Edition’. It focuses on  incredible triumphs in the theatrical landscape: Stage Manager Lois Dawson reflects on everything that has been made possible by the creation of Progress Lab 1422 in Vancouver, I celebrate the opening of The Theatre Centre in Toronto, and the final conversation from our Geographic Corespondents considers creative space across the country.

Theatre in Canada has a lot of challenges, but this edition suggests we have the skill and passion to overcome them.
