Our Vision

RST imagines an inclusive world where diversity is celebrated through a deeper understanding of each other.

Our Mission

To bring this vision to reality, RST illuminates under-represented perspectives by giving voice to diverse artists from across the country including Quebec works in English translation.

RST defines diversity as gender equity, cultural background, sexual orientation, identity, physical/mental ability, and age.
