GhostLight was created to keep theatre artists active and inspired during this period of self-isolation. Our mission is to be an essential virtual resource for development and creative exploration. Accessibility for all is vitally important to us; that is why we are offering both free and accessibly priced opportunities to train with Canada’s premiere artists and mentors.
As we move forward, we will rely on the generosity of culture-loving individuals and businesses to sustain our pursuit of excellence in mentorship, innovation and collaboration. We believe that investing in artists now will pay thrilling dividends in the future.
Furthermore, during the COVID-19 economic lockdown, for every dollar donated to our GoFundMe page fifty cents will go towards supporting The AFC's* mission to help "Canadian entertainment professionals maintain their health, dignity and ability to work.
It is a painful, fearful time for so many of our friends and colleagues - the profound impact of COVID-19 on livelihoods, careers, and companies will be felt for a long time. We are so inspired by the creativity and collaborative spirit of our community, as we turn to the arts to help us make sense of our new reality. It is fantastic to partner with projects like GhostLight to make sure artists continue to engage in creative exploration and develop new ways of telling stories. We are honoured to be a channel for the expression of the community's goodwill and to be of service to so many who need us now.
David Hope, The AFC's Executive Director
