Lorna Craig is an actor, director, and community arts facilitator based in Toronto. She has worked with children and youth for 15 years, most recently collaboratively creating plays in Montreal from 2013 – 2017. She trained as a puppeteer with Bread and Puppet Theatre and Puppetmongers, most recently creating and performing mobile puppet shows on Toronto Island with Shadowland Puppetry.
In 2015 she coordinated a research project at Concordia University, The Encounters Project, that used performance to explore theatre’s ability to investigate conflict across cultural divides. In the fall of 2015 she directed on life and living, a documentary theatre piece based on personal stories from ‘AIDS Community Care Montreal’, an HIV/AIDS support network. While travelling in India in 2017, Lorna directed and narrated The Christmas Story pageant at the Hairakhan ashram in Haldwani.
This summer she coordinated and facilitated The White Rabbit Arts Residency at Red Clay Farm in Nova Scotia. Lorna spent much of her childhood at TSP so is thrilled to be returning to her old stomping grounds as the new Children’s Church Coordinator.
