About Triune

Note: If you’re looking for Triune Productions Inc., please go to: www.johnbarclay.ca

Triune Arts is a non-profit charitable organization incorporated in 1981 with a mandate to “develop a permanent ensemble of actors and directors through workshops and stage/screen productions, and thereby to develop the dramatic arts in Canada.” Since 1990, our focus has been to develop educational resources on a variety of subjects, including international development issues, youth employment training, cross-cultural communication and, more recently, alternative dispute and conflict resolution. We have been distributing those resources worldwide since 1995. See them on Triune’s YouTube Channel

While our work is national and international in scope, Triune Arts is a small charity of Ontario based members who discount or donate their professional services. We receive generous discounts and donations from suppliers to the film, theatre and video industry as well as grants from the public and private sectors. Income is generated through tuition from workshops, events and from distribution of film and video productions.

A key feature of our educational approach is to involve those most directly concerned with an issue in the development of materials. Our constituents are the participants in our videos, the end-users of our resources — teachers, youth, facilitators, social workers families — and the providers of expertise in terms of content. We provide the creative model and technical expertise needed to develop high quality resources. This alternative approach ensures that our programs are both educational and highly entertaining.

As it looks forward to its thirty-seventh year of operation, Triune Arts continues to specialize in developing film, video, multimedia, music and theatre related projects and developing communications skills for professionals.
