The Myth of Canadian Politeness: Racism Behind Platitudes & Civility



A mainstay for the past ten years at the Stratford Festival and active in the Arts across North America over the past twenty, E.B. Smith has always approached his work with an eye on developing strategies to eradicate oppressive practices within the work.

The goal is to empower as diverse a selection of voices as possible. As an artist of colour, E.B. recognizes the power of experiencing one’s own history and world view manifest on stage and within administrative practices, as well as furthering connections to the stories of others. It is his mission to facilitate the cultivation and cooperation of leaders from every cross section of our society, and across cultural traditions.
