Canada: Colony to Country – A War of 1812 Story was a new play that engaged graduate post-secondary emerging artists in the planning and production process in the CKA ArtWorks program. An Artist and Community Collaboration component linked the interns with professional theatre design artists Denise Lisson and Barbara Rowe who worked in a mentorship capacity alongside emerging theatre design artists Nancy Kapodistrias and Jon Grosz to lead and guide the design component of the sets and props for this new premiere. Five hundred school age children across 13 sites performed Canada: Colony to Country – A War of 1812 Story, celebrating the culmination of 15 weeks of the After School Arts Program.
