The Honest 6ix Artist Residency at Toronto for Everyone brought me into the CSI fold. I'm a professional actor and published writer whose credits encompass theatre, film, television, opera and radio (www.aliciapayne.ca). I currently serve as President of the Playwrights Guild of Canada. As an artist educator, I have led workshops for organizations such as Lakeshore Arts Shazaam! Program, Uth Ink/Luminato, The Conference of Independent Schools Drama Festival and Play! A Symposium at the 14th World Festival of Children's Theatre. As a librettist, an excerpt of my work was on display in the Canadian Forces Artist Program Exhibition at the Diefenbunker Museum in Ottawa. I'm a co-founder Arbez Drama Projects (www.arbezdrama.com).
