Outreach in the Community
In 2015, we launched a successful 10-week pilot project in partnership with Art City Toronto, a not for profit organization based in St. James Town. The community is located in Toronto’s inner city and the majority of the residents are new to Canada and come from countries where they have experienced war, poverty and abuse. It is Canada’s most densely populated community and the average family income is less than $23,000/year.
Today, Suitcase Theatre offers weekly drama and dance classes at no charge to the children at Art City. By partnering with Art City, we are able to enrich the programming they offer without the need to invest in additional overhead.
RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE AND SICK KIDS HOSPITAL
We also work in partnership with Sick Kids Hospital and Ronald McDonald House by offering regular curriculum-based drama and dance workshops and on-camera sing-alongs and drama programming.
Suitcase Theatre would like to thank Boehringer Ingleheim Canada Inc for their support of our outreach programs to children’s healthcare organizations.
Suitcase Theatre would like to thank Johanna Weaver for sponsoring our community outreach programs to Ronald McDonald House from 2016-2019.
Thank you to Rosedale United Church (Social Outreach Committee) as a supporter of our Art City and Sick Kids Programs.
