Common Boots Theatre - How do we hold different truths together in the same space?During Canada’s last federal election, a group of theatre makers volunteered for local elections. These eyewitness accounts provided fodder for the new Canadian play The Election, by Natasha Greenblatt and Yolanda Bonnell with the company. Exploring the intersection of Indigenous, Settler and Newcomer experience with the political process, The Election sparks urgent dialogue just as Canadians are about to take another swing at the ballot box.This play has been imagined and produced with a diverse audience in mind. Integrated Audio Description, ASL interpretation, Touch tours, and Relaxed performances will be available at various times throughout the show. October 2019

Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund (OCAF)
The Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund (OCAF) was established in 1999. It has two aims: to increase cultural tourism by providing investments to assist Ontario organizations to develop, promote and present one-off or first time events, or a significant expansion of existing activity, which are designed to attract new tourists and visitors to cultural events; and to increase the earned revenue capability of the applicant organization. Since 1999, the Government of Ontario has invested $32 million in the Fund and the success of the over 450 initiatives in which OCAF has invested has led to a healthy replenishment of the Fund for future projects. Attendance to OCAF funded events has reached 35 million to date. Ongoing.
