Home is a Beautiful Word

Local playwright/journalist Joel Bernbaum travelled to Victoria, B.C. and interviewed over 500 people to create a portrait of homelessness. We hear from the housed, the homeless, and those who are “one paycheque away” from the street.  Enlightening, funny, and moving, this documentary play provides a kaleidoscopic view of an issue present in every Canadian city. Presented by Persephone Theatre April 12 - 21, 2018 at the Broadway Theatre. Get your tickets here.

Compassion to Action

An exciting community engagement piece that converts art into involvement. Ten Individuals/Groups will commit to volunteer for an organization that eases or works to prevent Homelessness. Their journeys will be recorded and shared at the performances of Home is a Beautiful Word in April 2018, inspiring more individuals to turn their compassion into action.

Participating Organizations: Saskatoon Food Bank and Learning Centre, Friendship Inn, The Lighthouse, The Bridge, Habitat for Humanity, The Salvation Army, Aids Saskatoon, White Buffalo Youth Lodge and YWCA Saskatoon
