Ruth Howard

Artistic Director,
Jumblies Theatre

Ruth Howard is the founding Artistic Director of Jumblies Theatre + Arts: a radically inclusive community-engaged arts organization based in Toronto. With Jumblies, she has created and produced a series of multi-year Toronto residencies involving hundreds of people, resulting in large-scale performances and lasting offshoots, and many other interdisciplinary and participatory projects with the places and people in Toronto and across Canada.

Ruth has taught in many contexts and mentored many artists and organizations. Her current multi-year project, Grounds for Goodness, is navigating through pandemic times to explore the notion of ‘social goodness’ with many artists, participants and partners.
