VIDEO: Stratford Festival Hosts 'Black Like Me, Past, Present and Future: Behind the Stratford Festival Curtain'

Article Pixel

Recent racialized events in Canada and the U.S. have caused the Stratford Festival to take stock of its complicity in upholding anti-Black racism and, in an unprecedented move, the Festival has offered its Black company members, staff and crew free rein on its social media and this live YouTube broadcast.

A panel of Black artists and artisans will discuss how the last few weeks have affected them, the experience of living in conservative and 95% white Perth County and the complexities and challenges they have faced while working at the Festival. Stratford Festival patrons are invited for a singular look at what it's like to be Black in the world, and in this town and company.

If questions arise during this conversation, please email them to and they will reply at a later time. Questions in the live chat will not receive answers from the panel.
