A Spoken Forum Collective Presentation by:
Branch Out Theatre and Cytopoetics
Starring Resident of Kingston Galloway Orton Park (KGO)
This production combines spoken word poetry and forum theatre to address the issues of poverty, discrimination and the struggles of living in community housing, prevalent in the KGO community of East Scarborough.
It’s Here We Dwell was co-created with residents of KGO as part of the Spoken Forum Collective pilot project in East Scarborough. This project engaged KGO residents in a 6months long immersive program in spoken word poetry and theatre to build new creative skills and use spoken word poetry and forum theatre as tools to address the ongoing issues in the KGO community.

This project was created as a partnership between Branch Out Theatre and Cytopoetics, funded by Ontario Arts Council, APCOL and East Scarborough Storefront
