Churching for Home! An abandoned church into a theater!

Donation protected
“Churching” for a home before I lose my vision!

My current home:

Homeless theater artist searching for an abandoned church to renovate into a theater and a home.

Hi I’m Victoria!.
I’ve created 22 original plays, which have been produced in theaters in Canada and the USA.
​I am searching (churching) for an abandoned church to transform into a Theater: With no funding, no assistance…just my life’s savings and a dream!

Which brings us to the serious part. As a working artist…
Make that a single mom working artist…
Make that a single mom working artist with a child with HLH (Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis)…
Make that a single mom working artistwith a child with HLH and with disabilities of my own (PTSD, going blind in my only remaining eye)…It’s been very hard to find affordable housing!
​I have lived in RV’s.
I have lived in a tent
I have lived in a van
I have lived in a storefont
I have lived in subsidized housing with a gas leak that nearly killed me…and from all this trauma and instability, I still wrote and produced award winning plays! Imagine what I could do from an actual home?
​It’s time for a forever home. A place that is mine. A place I can paint high contrast for when I lose the rest of my vision. A place for my daughter. And a place for the community….
…This home is for more than just me...The Church Theater will house me, ending the cycle of despair and trauma of being homeless. The theater will feed not just my soul and my healing journey, but of others. My theater will:
Produce only new works! Our Theater mandate is ‘Always New, Always Creative"
Support and nurture new artists
Be part of the community
Be a destination and haven for artists and audiences looking for fresh new art.
By supporting my dream, I can support other dreams!
