It’s time to hear our stories …
Dialogues on the Edge – Point of Entry. This is a showcase of multidisciplinary performances to learn about the experiences of Indigenous, Black, refugee, Deaf peoples, and people with disabilities. This event will offer the rare opportunity for individuals in Canada to understand the unique experiences of some of the most systemically marginalized people in our society, whose experiences and voices are often silenced, while creating a sense of pride and belonging as we showcase our culture and talent.
