An active member of the Presbyterian church, knitter/actor/writer Kirk Dunn will be presenting his one-man play, The Knitting Pilgrim, featuring his Stitched Glass tapestries.

October 20 – 21, 2023


Sponsored by MacLeodCares & Homeward Inns of Canada

The Knitting Pilgrim is a multidisciplinary theatre piece that uses storytelling, image projection and the Stitched Glass tapestries to create conversation around the rise of populism, xenophobia, and fear of the ‘other.’ It speaks to our need to practice empathy – especially interfaith empathy – and to enter complex conversations, that are not black and white, about why people struggle to get along in the world today.
