On May 7th, the Tarragon Theatre in Toronto was transformed into an evening that was one part experimental theatre, one part live pitch and two-parts cocktail party. The room filled with buzz as actors captivated the audience with dramatic vignettes created by emerging and established playwrights. The pitches from i2i Lab fellows were equally inspiring as this next generation of health leaders presented how they are taking health innovations to scale.
Scientists, health care providers, designers, engineers, artists and entrepreneurs came together to celebrate the launch of this exciting initiative. Together, they are united for a single purpose: to make health care better for people who need it most.
A very special thank you to our emcee and host for the evening George Stroumboulopoulos. Also, a huge thanks to our playwrights, Jonathan Garfinkel, Hannah Moscovitch, Drew Hayden Taylor and David Young, who used the power of story-telling to help shine a light on the problems the i2i Lab is addressing. And to the very talented actors, Akosua Amo-Adem, Herbie Barnes and RH Thomson, thank you for turning these stories into such compelling performances.
