Women’s Theatre and Creativity Centre – Letter from the Director


Letter from the Director: In the early years of the Women’s Theatre and Creativity Centre our focus was mainly on offering workshops and ongoing developmental programs with as much variety in the form of creative expression as possible. As the organization matured, we realized that it was not possible to meet everybody’s needs at all times unless we wanted to drive ourselves into a place of burn-out. Since then, we have become more project focused. Projects are initiated either from within the organization, or, often, someone from outside the Women’s Theatre and Creativity Centre approaches us with a script, an idea, a project, a need – something they want to see happen! We’re a small organization with no ongoing funding or staff – but our mandate is about connecting women with their creativity in the context of community, and, if we get excited about your idea then we want to help you make it happen. We are also able to provide programming, workshops or to create performances for your organization or event. So feel free to contact us at and we can explore together how to make your vision a reality.
