Canadian theatre is racist because it lacks cultural diversity. Nowhere is this more apparent than in Vancouver, the most Asian city outside of Asia, yet our stages look nothing like our sidewalks. This is because the leadership of Vancouver theatre is overwhelmingly white. The position of Artistic Director is the most influential in theatre, and have two main responsibilities: curating shows, and directing them. Our artists are often qualified to do the former, but unable to do the latter due to lack of experience. Our program will give Asian Canadians the opportunity to gain experience directing, benefit from mentorship, and disrupt the whiteness of leadership in Vancouver theatre.
