October 15, 2012 | Without our generous funders and sponsors, Contact East would be unable to bring its presenters and artists four days of extraordinary showcases, professional development sessions and networking opportunities.
Thank you to our host showcasing venue, the Fredericton Playhouse and its staff - we are so fortunate to have access to this amazing venue and its people. To the many people who donated their time, thank you to all of the volunteers and the Contact East jury. To our tech crew, thank you for your hours of work making everyone look and sound good.
