This is a remarkable month of creativity and learning as my new play, When It Rains, develops in workshops with Chromatic Theatre Playwrights Unit, culminating in a public reading with professional performers at the Grand Theatre in Calgary in June. The work with the Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity project to capture Oral Histories for the 50th Anniversary of their Indigenous Leadership program progresses, as well, and I'm honoured to continue meeting with Leaders, Faculty & Elders for on-camera interviews at their beautiful on-campus facilities. There have also been a few occasions lately to share my presentation, Call Me Liberte, which is about the Sixties-Scoop, Adoption & Reunion, with pre-service teachers at MRU and UofC, and RVS high-school students taking the Indigenous Studies course. Another privilege this month will be to re-connect with Indigenous Artist, Sandra Lamouche, and capture her new Jingle Healing Dance out on the Land beside Johnson Lake near Banff. The days are just packed!
