Volunteer Information for Native Earth Performing Arts

What services does your organization provide?
The company is run according to seven traditional teachings or principles:

  • GENEROSITY
  • COURAGE
  • TOLERANCE
  • STRENGTH OF CHARACTER
  • PATIENCE
  • HUMILITY
  • WISDOM

These principles serve as a kind of prime directive for everyone who works for us or with us. All decisions taken in achieving what we strive for - artistic excellence, opportunity to develop new voices, to support established voices, to be visible, locally, regionally, nationally and internationally ? happen within this framework, making (we hope) Native Earth a safe, supportive, ambitious, insistent place to create.

We are striving to connect on a deeper level with our communities. The Community Liaison reaches into communities, offering workshops, touring shows, resources, school matinees. She maintains a profile for the Company at a multiplicity of events in Toronto and Ontario. We are partnering with more and more of our colleagues - Theatre Centre, Onelight Theatre, Turtle Gals, Magnus Theatre, Factory Theatre, National Arts Centre - on more and more diverse projects. We are staking our place, touring regionally, nationally and internationally.

We are striving to identify and nurture new voices through such work as the Young Voices programs and community outreach, while insisting on the highest standards achieveable. We are honouring our roots and traditions as well as integrating them into our contemporary artistic practice.

Vision is the art of seeing things invisible, Jonathan Swift said. Native Earth insists on being visible, on making our artists, our work, seen, our voices heard.
