Rowan Hébert, Technical Director

Rowan was born and raised on an urban farm on the unceded territory of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations. She is very passionate about theatre as a means of bringing about social change, and in May 2012 co-produced and co-directed (with fellow Hollaback Victoria staff member, Paloma Ponti) the first Canadian production of the play “8” by Dustin Lance Black which helped win the fight for marriage equality in California. You’re most likely to find her in the library, in the theatre, or outside the legislature.
