We believe that while Edna was alive, she dove into the world head first. Inside this space, we hope you’ll do the same.
Edna Bear was born and raised in Kitchener, ON. In 2007 two boxes full of pictures, letters diaries and keepsakes from her life were found beside a dumpster in Toronto and eventually made their way back here. They were given to Pat the Dog.
We’ve named this space after Edna so has to honour her memory; to acknowledge that she added to our community simply by existing. She was a dancer, an artist, a creator. This rehearsal room is available for rental as a safe space to play, to try and to create. It is somewhere glorious failure is not only allowed, but encouraged.
In naming this space after Edna, anything created here – regardless of what it is – becomes a tribute to her efforts and endeavours – to the vibrancy with which, we can only gather and imagine from what was left behind, she conducted her life.
