ANIMATING RABBIT-TOWN

The Animating Rabbit-Town Project explored the historically rich neighborhood formerly and still anecdotally called ‘Rabbit-Town’ which was once the proud working class engine of Fredericton. The project culminated in the presentation of new play entitled, Rabbit-Town that was written by Ryan Griffith, and Lisa Anne Ross and which enjoyed a sold-out run at the York Street Train Station in 2014.

From 2012 - 2014, Solo Chicken Productions heralded a rich community arts celebration of the historic Fredericton neighbourhood of Rabbit-town, called the Animating Rabbit-town Project.  (www.rabbit-town.com) This major community collaboration involved the creation of a blog, in-depth historical research, free workshops for seniors and youth, community events such as the Rabbit-town Christmas Concert, a free walking tour and partnerships with numerous community organizations such as St. Thomas University, Connaught Street School and the Charlotte Street Arts Centre.
