It's going to be a heavy weekend!

Hello friends,
I am speaking at This is My City this week.
My tale of rebuilding concerns ‘How’ marvellous the people of Calgary are, when faced with adversity and actually, always !
Please come and hear the amazing stories and help make this annual event the best it can be!!!  Love those clich├ęs.

And check out here…. to see what else you would enjoy from the This is My City schedule.

April 12
Central Library
Main Floor
Join us for a fun and fast-paced series of presentations that reflect a diversity of responses to both art making and flood stories. Told against the backdrop of powerful images and followed by questions and discussion, Six Minute Stories will inform and provoke. Please check our website for speaker updates.

Another show you might like not to miss.
I have just learnt about and see the work of Sean O’Connell online, he is showing his work at ACAD this week to next.
And there is an opening on the 10th.
See if you can make it.
