Lindsay Kyte is a third-generation native of Reserve Mines, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and the great-niece of Mary and Joe Laben, two pioneers of the social justice co-operative movement known as the "Antigonish Movement." Kyte has appeared on stages and pages across the globe.
Kyte has an extensive resume as a writer, actor and speaker. Yet her main focus for the past six years has been developing the incredible story of Tompkinsville, the first co-operative housing project in North America. With Tompkinsville now ready for production, Kyte also serves as a voice of the co-operative movement, delivering key-note speeches about her journey in writing this play, the story of Tompkinsville itself and how we must live dangerously and create furiously -- together-- to make change in the world. Kyte is a TEDx speaker. She is currently booking speaking engagements and can be reached directly for booking/inquiries (see "Contact" page).
