Don't miss the online premiere of "Chloe=Catalyst" - the hybrid theatre/video production that tells the story of Chloe Cooley. Cooley was the enslaved Black woman at the centre of the drama that would result in the first anti-slavery legislation passed anywhere in North America - and this happened at what is now Niagara-On-The-Lake! Monday, March 14 is the official launch date. It is also the 229th anniversary of Chloe's abduction, which is the event that provides the catalyst for all that follows. After over two centuries, Chloe (played by Shahi Teruko) finally has a voice.

After a successful workshop in 2019, and an enhanced presentation in 2020, "Fish And Rum" - Andrew Craig's fictional retelling of the real-life history of illicit trade between Newfoundland and Jamaica during Prohibition - goes into another round of development, on its way to becoming a fully-staged theatrical production. Many thanks to the audiences in Toronto and St. John's who attended and provided valuable feedback on the story and presentation. 

Work continues on the documentary about the musical history of Toronto's Eglinton-Oakwood community - the hotbed for and birthplace of the Toronto Reggae sound during the late 1960s and early 1970s. On the heels of the wildly-successful "Titans Of Toronto Reggae" concert on March 2, 2019, Culchahworks provides not only sizzling concert footage, but also a look into the modern-day challenges faced by the community, at risk of being uprooted by the ongoing construction of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT.
