Project: Humanity Bursary Program 

Project: Humanity began as a group of artists who developed a theatre program for youth in Ontario prisons as a means of giving back to the community. They turned their attention to global causes by traveling to Jamaica to work with Father Ho Lung and the Friends of the Poor, caring for children in orphanages and assisting with Jamaica's first musical. These experiences inspired them to start this non-profit organization that would channel the creative energy of our artistic community towards making a difference.

Through both the PH: THEATRE and PH: YOUTH arms of the company, Project: Humanity continues to discover innovative ways to nurture creativity and connectivity in the communities that need it most.


The Armstrong Acting Studios Bursary Program with Project: Humanity provides a select actor from Project: Humanity the opportunity to train at the Studio with full tuition covered. The selected actor of this Bursary is up to the discretion of the team at Project: Humanity.

We are so honoured to partner with this team of innovative individuals, and aid in giving back to our community in any way we can.

The actor receiving the Bursary for 2024 has been selected.
