Celebrating 21 Seasons in Downtown St. Catharines

Who we are:

Suitcase in Point is a professional, artist-lead, not-for-profit, charitable organization based in St. Catharines ON. Our team is we made up of a dynamic community of cultural movers-and-shakers who create original theatre & comedy, site-specific multi-arts installations and experiences, and a myriad of bombastic cultural events and mentorship opportunities. Looking for the extraordinary in the everyday, we provide audiences with unique perspectives on local life and culture. We treat topical issues in a way that encourages change, tolerance, self-awareness and healthier more connected communities.

What we do:

  • Create Original Productions – Suitcase in Point has created and toured over 20 new Canadian plays, delivered dozens of original comedy shows and we are experts at producing a myriad of creative, site-specific multi-arts experiences;
  • Recruit Regional Talent – We engage hundreds of local artists annually in our artistic programs and pay professional artist fees for their work;
  • Facilitate Professional Development – We run an annual of Arts Mentorship Program offering residencies, workshops and arts-based learning opportunities for emerging artists, youth and the broader community;
  • Cultivate Audiences – Over 5000+ people attend our work annually (and growing);
  • Run a studio space in downtown St. Catharines for workshops and intimate performances;
  • Present Niagara’s largest multi-arts event, In the Soil Arts Festival, showcasing artists from a range of disciplines. In the Soil Arts Festival nurtures the creation of new work, showcases talent, encourages innovation, offers learning opportunities and provides intimate and uncommon platforms for audiences to experience work by contemporary performing and literary artists, musicians and media artists. In the Soil is Niagara’s homegrown arts festival and is working to make a Niagara that is self-determining and culturally distinct.
