Since September 2019 we have been planning, with the Brantford substance user community and service agencies devoted to this community, to devise and present a verbatim theatre play in fall 2020. Due to COVID-19 we have had to postpone these plans to 2021. However, we did not want to leave the community without the anticipated opportunity to have their stories heard, and in October-November 2021 we facilitated 10 online dramatic writing workshops for persons with lived experience of substance use. During the workshops, persons with lived experience of substance use were led through a series of creative exercises, resulting in the creation of a monologue. The workshops were a success, with more interest than spots for enrollment and with several participants expressing the desire for more workshops.

The monologues written by participants were then recorded by two professional local actors, and edited by a project cinematographer. The project is being displayed on an instagram page @IndisposableBrantford which is being launced on Saturday November 21st 2020. There will be an opportunity to see the monologue stories and meet the project creators, in a live (zoom & FB) presentation on November 28th 2020 at 1pm EST.

All of the artists who participated in this project were paid at an industry standard, and all of the participants were given a $100 honorarium as a thank you for sharing their stories.

We are looking for donations to support further development of this project. Thank you for your support!
