Action Plan - Update

A message from the Artists’ Working Group

February 22, 2021

On February 21st, the newly formed Artists’ Working Group met to begin its work. We are pleased to announce the other three members of the Working Group: Skye Brandon, Daniel Hudson, and Carla Orosz.

We discussed the purpose of the working group, what we have been charged to do, and began to lay out a pathway to achieve our goals. We laid out a timeline for our work, so that the staff and board of Persephone can do its work, and undertake the search for new artistic leadership in short order.

We talked of many things: about who is not represented at this table, and how we make sure their voices are heard; about what we have already heard from community members in consultations, in conversations, in correspondence.

We wish to acknowledge that Persephone Theatre is on Treaty 6 land, which includes the Nêhiyawak (Cree) as original signatories and became the traditional homeland of the Métis Nation. We also acknowledge the contributions of the Dakota and Round Prairie Métis peoples in establishing our city of Saskatoon and we extend our appreciation for the opportunity to live, create and perform on this beautiful territory.
