The organization grew out of the success of a number of projects, programs and performances that were developed and facilitated under the guidance of Traci Foster, during her ten year exploration within the disability community; including her three-year term as the Artist in Residence at the South Saskatchewan Independent Living Centre and Common Weal Community Arts Inc.
Listen To Dis’ VOICE ensemble, The Other Ordinary theatre collective, and the musical ensemble The Dripping Honeys are products of that growth.
Listen to Dis' VOICE
\With programming dating back to 2006, Listen to Dis' VOICE built the foundation of the organization. The group meets weekly at The Artesian or by joining in using Zoom to create art and community together. The group welcomes any and all. Click below for more details about how you can get involved

The Other Ordinary
What started as a group of University of Regina students coming together for a class way back in 2015 has morphed into one of Canada's only touring crip theatre companies. This team of emerging professional disabled artists has toured throughout Saskatchewan and produced two sold-out shows: Neither Heroes nor Ordinary People; and Mine to Have: Sensuality and Circumstances
