Theatre Yes’ VISCOSITY nominated for an Elizabeth Sterling Haynes Award for Outstanding Independent Production!
VISCOSITY sought to create bridges between Albertans, using a new form of artistic expression never tired before in Edmonton, opening up conversations we do not always have in our province. Funders, partners, sponsors, contributors, community participants, artists and audiences came together from a variety of sectors to make VISCOSITY a huge success.
Congratulations to all participating artists and community participants. This acknowledgement is yours.
