Support the Black history month talent showcase

​"I’ve worked many years creating work without any institutional support in this country and at no time was I resentful because it’s been instilled in me, as a woman of colour, that one has to pull themselves up with their own bootstraps. I have invested in that mantra for the 9 years I’ve been working at becoming a better writer. I’ve written the multiple drafts and applied for dozens of grants but never expected anyone to make life easier for me.

 

It was only with Catherine Hernandez and b current, a company that historically gives a platform to racialized women, that I was given a hand up. I mean, someone saw me grinding away on a script I believed in, had been refining for over 2 years and said, ‘Let us help you make this better and use our reach to bring it to a larger audience’. Because of this support and their residency my Viola Desmond play, Controlled Damage, is going to get its world premiere at the largest Maritime regional theatre in the country in 2020. b current is the little theatre that could, did, and will continue to conquer as long as it champions marginalized voices."

-- Andrea Scott, 2018/2019 Playwright-in-Residence
