Welcome to 110 Parkdale Ave, the last subsidized low rise building in the neighbourhood. It's special, but you can’t tell that from the outside. The building is far from perfect, but for the tenants who occupy its cracked walls and uneven floors, it’s home. When the tenants are faced with an eviction notice, they (reluctantly) step out of their bubbles to band together as a community in order to save their homes.
“I jumped at the opportunity to be part of First Drafts because I wanted to inject more joy in my creative process. The collaborative nature of this work is something I know will strengthen my creative process but more importantly, work alongside some incredible musicians that remind me of the magic in musicals.”– Meghan Swaby
“Connecting with the students at Sheridan is the thing that excited me most. It's always amazing coming to Sheridan and meeting all these amazing people who are going to shape the future of the industry.”– Chris Tsujiuchi
