Anyone who knows me, know I have a passion for the Arts. My passion stretches from performing to being a board member to ensure sustainability. For me, the Arts brings beauty and joy into my life. I'm both entertained and challenged. Live theatre at Shadow is compelling, thought provoking and award winning. Over the years, I've watched performers at the Edmonton Music and Speech Arts Festival blossom from nervous first timers to self assured adults. These two forums give me insight and a glimpse into other cultures and situations.
We are entering into year 2 of Covid and the Arts organizations that are near to my heart are struggling to stay afloat. Live performances are shut down. The pandemic has made government and corporate grants harder to come by and our regular donors are struggling themselves.
Year 2 of the pandemic is the last year of my 50's. Let's make a difference.
