One week ago, the first-ever Staging Our Histories featured seven extraordinary stories examining the past and its repercussions in the present, performed live to a full house at the National Arts Centre’s Fourth Stage. We are very thankful to the talents of our performers and our superb host, Adrian Harewood, for making the evening enthralling & unforgettable.

There were many people who made Staging Our Histories possible, however, that you didn’t get a chance to see on stage. The co-directors would like to thank the following individuals for their support and their valuable time, as well as all other colleagues and friends who supported and promoted the event:
