Meet the Playmaker

My name is Justine Buss. I am a stay-at-home artist parent, currently based in Toronto. I am a theatre teaching artist with specific interests in the relationship between education and dramatic play. I became a mom in April 2015 and have wanted to explore and redefine the relationship between my art making and parenting ever since.

I call myself the “Playmaker” because I hope this online playground inspires people to do just that–play! We’re really all playmakers. If we want to create–we’ve got to make it happen.

Want to join in the fun and games?

Feel free to email me at artistparentplayground (at) I’d love to hear about your work, play, and stories and possibly feature them in a future post.
