It’s time I started blogging semi-regularly again. The autumn was very busy with the Renfrew Ravine Moon Festival on September 25th. I was again blessed to be working with a really great team of artists, crew and community members. We had a torrential downpour just in time for the start of the big finale in Renfrew Park but somehow the rain made it even more exciting.

In October I started working with artist/teacher Laura Treloar and artist Flick Harrison with the Athena 8 arts students at Windermere to design a wall mural for the school courtyard that highlights Still Creek and the history of the neighbourhood. Some good progress happening  with collecting history and developing designs for the 10 panels of the mural. We are hoping to be able to send to design to the sign shop by Spring break.

In November I was the very lucky recipient of the Mayors Arts Award for my work in Community Arts. They asked me to also choose an emerging artist in the same discipline and I was please to name Maggie Winston – puppeteer and community artist to share the award with me. On November 24th we had a lovely evening with Mayor Gregor Robertson and the other Arts Award recipients.

In December I was hired by the CACV and worked with Jason Bouchard, Isaac Rosen-Purcell, Arthur Hazleden, Sita Kumar, and 45 community artists in the downtown east side to create glowing halos with community made panels to place in DTES Parks. we had an opening celebration  and parade Dec 16th. The halos are likely coming down next week so you’ll have to hurry to see them.

Christmas was lovely and full of friends ( about 90 at our party!) and family but with many moments of sadness missing Dad. January has been Clara birthday season and launching new projects.
