20 / 20 Golden Standard Program

20/20 Golden Standard


It has become customary for many theatre companies in Canada to do a land acknowledgement. This is the moment where we all contemplate the horrible atrocities that have been done to the land, and the caretakers of it. But so often these trite acknowledgements do nothing, mean nothing and change nothing.
We at Can't Stand Sitting Productions believe that this is sacred land. Created by forces we don't understand and cared for by peoples that we barely acknowledge with our lips. From the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat sought to protect and respect this land. And today, we vow to do the same.
We live in a tumultuous time, and the land that we have sworn to care for demands action. That is why we are donating to the Indigenous Environmental Network charity so that we may support the ones in our country who are the most impacted by the weather changes.

Notes from the Writer:

Back in July when I was starting this whole absolutely insane idea, I never would have thought that this would be where we'd ended up. 

But I'd always hoped. 

Doing this project every other month and forcing myself to write more and more and more has been a great exercise in... Well... It's been a lot. 

A lot of writing. A lot of frustration. A lot of challenge - but also a lot of new friends. A lot of encouragement. A lot of growth. 

Also, if you ever wanna get some cool clothing, you can buy some of his wares at www.OneChicGeek.com which lets you look cool and helps him eat.
