'When I started Shadowpath in 2002, I had no idea of its potential. I approached everyday spaces because I couldn't afford to rent the few regional theatres. That turned out to be the best thing for Shadowpath and now everyday spaces are our signature style of theatre producing. Businesses gain a creative boost and access to new customers, performers get a professional opportunity to work in alternative spaces, the community gets more arts and culture programming and Shadowpath connects to community partners and free space! Now that's winning! -Alex Karolyi
We celebrate the work and lives of the first artists, the first story-tellers and the first history-makers who have been forgotten or ignored as time marched on. We acknowledge these early Creators that lived on the lands we now occupy. These are the traditional lands and territories of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, the Wendat, the Haudenosaunee and the Anishinaabe peoples. The histories of those that previously cared for this land, the stories they told, and the lives they lived remain an integral part of it. In illuminating the voices of The Forgotten we hope to forge a bridge between all people creating a better more inclusive world where each of us is heard and our contributions acknowledged, commemorated and remembered.
Black Lives Matter
The Shadowpath family stands in solidarity with
Black Lives Matter and commits to actions and attitudes that fully support our black community. We aim to be part of the urgent change necessary to create a truly equal community.
We are doing this through specific and conscious actions with the programs we are presenting, the artists we are collaborating with and the perspectives and stories we are giving a platform to.
