A History of Off the Wall
Explore Our Story
Off the Wall Stratford Artists Alliance was founded in 2005 by artist Susan Starkweather and master props builder Ken Dubblestyne. Recognizing a shortage of intensive learning opportunities, Off the Wall was formed to raise awareness about theatre’s backstage world and inspire the next generation of production artists.
Personally inspired by the generous mentorship both received from world-renowned designer Desmond Heeley, Susan and Ken collaborated to establish a creative environment where teamwork, inclusivity, imagination and artistic growth are encouraged and nurtured.
