  • The What it is podcast is two years old! Check out their 2 year birthday episode.
  • The Alberta Foundation for the Arts wants to know “What is your art?”. Check out picks and favourites from people like Heather Klimchuk or Don Iveson and create your own top five list.
  • Kim’s Convenience opens at the Citadel Theatre this week. I’m really excited for this play and that the Citadel has chosen it to open their 49th season. I’ll be attending on Tuesday night – look for my review later this week.
  • Vigilante, which goes up at the Citadel in March, just finished a week-long workshop
