The Arts

 

I have a long history of supporting individual artists and arts organizations.

My contributions to the arts are focussed on concept consolidation, project development, and contract delivery.

A short list of projects in which I am or have been involved include:

  • rural connections across Eastern Ontario with World Folk Music Ottawa
  • Mali – Canada exchanges with Jah Youssouf and  The Woodchoppers Association (2003-2009)
  • documentary film production – Road to Baleya – with Close Up Films (2004)
  • founding of Coalition of New Canadians for Arts and Culture (2007-2011)
  • youth programs + cultural diversity projects with Stellula Music (Ontario)
  • arts and culture, performance +  program development with Jaku Konbit (Ontario)
  • cultural hub + performance venue + business development with Bronson Centre (Ontario)

My experience in the arts includes theatre production, play writing, professional choral singing, blog/novel/poetry writing (and business management – surprise surprise).

I publish books of my own when possible and… from rare to rare time… blogging (economics) + (international development) + (poems).
