Video: The Ripple Effect/Effet d’écho – 4th Line Theatre

“The #RippleEffect is the Ontario Arts Council’s series of short videos exploring how, beyond their intrinsic qualities, publicly funded arts activities add value in communities across Ontario. To learn more, visit: www.arts.on.ca/ArtsAddValue.

Every summer, the outdoor theatre company, 4th Line Theatre brings history to life and tourists to Peterborough and the Kawarthas. 4th Line’s focus on community stories is part of what makes their work unique – and part of why the Ontario Arts Council has supported its work from the beginning. “When other granting bodies struggled to understand our work, the Ontario Arts Council was a real cheerleader,” explains Blackwell. “Right from the beginning, it was our community-based nature that the Ontario Arts Council ‘got’ and supported. It’s a really big reason why we’re about to go into our 28th season.” Read the full story here.

Chaque été, la compagnie de théâtre en plein air 4th Line Theatre fait revivre l’histoire pour le bonheur des touristes de la région de Peterborough et des Kawarthas. Une des raisons qui caractérisent le travail de 4th Line, c’est l’accent que la compagnie met sur la communauté – et c’est aussi une des raisons pour lesquelles le Conseil des arts de l’Ontario a soutenu son travail depuis le début. « Alors que d’autres bailleurs de fonds avaient de la peine à comprendre ce que nous faisions, le Conseil des arts de l’Ontario ne cessait de nous encourager, explique Blackwell. Dès le début, il a compris et a soutenu notre nature communautaire. Si nous sommes sur le point d’entamer notre 28e saison, c’est en grande partie grâce à ça. » Apprenez-en plus.”

Resource | Shared experiences in creating community-engaged arts projects (Ontario Arts Council)

“In these short audio segments, artists Maggie Hutcheson, Emmy Pantin, Angola Murdoch and Cheryl L’Hirondelle describe their experiences in creating community-engaged arts projects. Topics discussed include how to approach collaborations with community members, the evolution of projects over time, and outcomes – both for participants and for themselves as arts practitioners.

Visit OAC’s website to listen to the full-length podcast episode, available through iTunes, Libsyn and other podcast services.

Maggie Hutcheson, community-engaged artist, educator and consultant

“In this short presentation, I’ll introduce some of the core principles of community-engaged art. I’ll also offer some useful tips on what to think about when planning a community-engaged project and suggest further resources for artists and institutions working in this field.” (Full transcript)

Emmy Pantin, Co-Director, Community Story Strategies

“For the Four Villages Community Health Centre, they saw the value of our arts practice as a tool to help break isolation, which is one of the social determinants of health.” (Full transcript)

Angola Murdoch, Founder and Artistic Director, Lookup Theatre, and circus artist

“A huge outcome for the participants is that they have gained this community where they know that they can come and be themselves. What the participants gain individually from [this program] is communication, teamwork, how to be positive, how to express themselves.” (Full transcript)

Cheryl l’Hirondelle, interdisciplinary artist, leader of “Why the Caged Bird Sings”

“What else I noticed is the power of having one’s own song. It’s kind of like having your own theme music for your life … it’s your own and no one can ever take that away from you.” (Full transcript)
