Urban Ink is a Vancouver-based professional theatre company that produces works by Indigenous and diverse artists. We put the power in the hands of Indigenous and culturally diverse artists to tell their own stories from their own unique voice.

Our Mission 

Urban Ink uplifts Indigenous and diverse voices through live performance.

Our Story

Established in 2001, the company was founded by Métis artist Marie Clements as an Indigenous and multi-cultural theatre company and produced over a dozen new works for the mainstage. In 2007, Diane Roberts became artistic director, creating new work, touring internationally to the Caribbean, and working in collaboration with rural Indigenous communities. In 2014, Oji-Cree First Nations theatre artist Corey Payette became artistic director. Corey is committed to deepening Urban Ink’s strong tradition of developing and investing in the voices of Indigenous and diverse artists to create work that celebrates the diversity of Canadian theatre.

The best antidote I know for worry is work. The best cure for weariness is the challenge of helping someone who is even more tired. One of the great ironies of life is this: He or she who serves almost always benefits more than he or she who is served.
