A Note from Paprika's new Artistic Producer- Ali Joy Richardson

Two years ago, I was a Paprika participant and experienced firsthand how meaningful and holistic the training here is:  Paprika strengthens young people not only as artists, but as leaders and innovators in all we do. No wonder this organization has thrived for seventeen years! Paprika plays a vital role in keeping the theatre industry industry exciting, diverse, and in-touch.  I've been fortunate to find mentors and a community in Toronto who keep me brave and I know how important it is to have a home as an artist. I'm honoured to join the team who make Paprika an inspiring and supportive homebase from which young artists can leap.  As one participant said this spring about Paprika: "It's all pretty lit". I totally agree.
