For time immemorial, long before Children’s Peace Theatre and the Massey Goulding Estate in which it operates were even dreamed of, there existed the sacred land and the ancestors of the original people. Tkaronto, “where the trees stand in water,” is a part of the traditional territory of many nations: the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee, the Wendat, and the Mississaugas of the New Credit. This land is subject to the Dish with One Spoon wampum belt covenant, an agreement between the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and a confederacy of Anishinabek and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes.
The Massey Goulding Estate
In 1921, the Massey Goulding Estate was built for Dorothy Massey. During the time she lived there, she dreamt of her home housing a children’s theatre and she went on to create the Toronto Children’s Players, who were a prominent theatre group for many years.
Children’s Peace Theatre was founded in 2001 and has been the proud steward of the Estate, a 5,000 square foot Arts and Crafts style heritage home nestled on the land in Taylor Creek Park.
