David Roche’s THE CHURCH OF 80% SINCERITY - Inspirational humorist David Roche has transformed the challenges and gifts of living with a facial disfigurement into a compelling message that has won standing ovations from New Zealand to Moscow, England to Australia, across Canada and the USA including at the White House, the Kennedy Center and the Sydney and Vancouver Olympics Arts Festivals. The Church of 80% Sincerity is David's signature one-man show that tracks the inspiring, poignant, wickedly funny and sometimes heart-breaking story of David's journey from shame to self-acceptance.  David's powerful vignettes and keen observations invite the sweet (and sometimes raucous) laughter that flows from the recognition that we are all flawed and struggling beings. He provides an irresistible and unforgettable glimpse of his (and your) inner beauty and worth, offering profound encouragement in dealing with whatever life brings you.

Justin HinesJustin Hines - Acclaimed Canadian Singer-Songwriter Justin Hines will perform with a few of his band and offer insight into his life, discussing how he has faced the challenges presented by Larsen's Syndrome head on and how a simple perspective change can go a long way. He speaks of empowerment and the importance of inclusion and how this can lead us all to find inspiration in the little things.
