Written and performed by renowned Canadian actor Shawn Wright, Ghost Light tells the hilarious and heartwarming story of his relationship with his late mother, and how she inspired his passion for theatre and his love of life. Starting from his mother’s birth and carrying through all the way until her passing, topics range all the way from religion and sexuality to country music and Meryl Streep. As a one-man show, Ghost Light is driven by Wright’s powerful stage presence. One minute animated and fully in character, the next conversational and down-to-earth. His performance is both entrancing and humanizing.

Jane’s Walk Belleville

Jane's Walks encourage people to share stories about their neighborhoods, discover unseen aspects of their communities, and use walking or bicycling as a way to connect with their neighbours. The first weekend in May, we walk and ride throughout Belleville to honour the ideas of Jane Jacobs. Jane’s Walk is a community-based approach to city planning that uses citizen-led walking and biking tours to create a venue for people to observe, reflect, share, question and re-imagine the places in which they live, work and play. Creative corridors in our downtown, history, poverty, places for people- we cover it all. Follow us on FB or Instagram.
