We at Ruby Slippers Theatre condemn the murder of George Floyd, an act of inhumane police brutality, that is perpetuated by a culture of white supremacy.

We in Canada share that culture, and we must commit ourselves collectively to dismantling white supremacy here at home, acknowledge that white privilege has come at the expense of BIPOC past and present, and rebuild our nation with justice and respect for all. We remain steadfast in our commitment to radical inclusivity and diversity in all that we do, empowering the underrepresented and working with BIPOC to abolish colonialism, misogyny and white supremacy.

Here is a Vancouver-specific initiative at https://mutualaid.shadowsmile.ca/; this problem is as entrenched here as anywhere.

Also, the VPL put out this fabulous list of children’s ebooks called “Stand Up! Racial Identity, Racism and Resistance for Grades K-7” at https://vpl.overdrive.com/library/kids/collection/1085869

Our Vision

Ruby Slippers Theatre imagines a 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 and inspires independent critical thought by giving voice to diverse, female-identifying artists and by premiering significant Québec works in English translation on the West Coast.
