   The TAXI Project: exploring freedom of expression through the arts is a new initiative by PEN Canada and the Art for Real Change (ARC) Collective that will engage communities across Ontario in a creative exploration around themes of freedom of expression. This multi-faceted project will be carried out over three years. In the first year the focus will be on the creation of a theatrical production, based on material generated by writers in exile. The focus of the second and third years will be a tour of the production to schools and communities in Ontario. The TAXI Stand Jam is part of the first-year development phase of the TAXI Project. The TAXI Project is generously funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
