Get personal with Calgary Arts Development’s Living a Creative Life web series host

Cherie McMaster

Born and raised right here in Calgary, Adora Nwofor is a comedian, a stylist, an activist, an anthropologist, a mom, and the host of Calgary Art Development’s Living a Creative Life web series.  

“That’s how all those things work for me, trying to give back to my community in places that people never really thought it was lacking but I thought it was,” she explains. “Truly, it’s all about activism and being an anthropologist, looking at the world through a different gaze. Not the gaze of, you know, corporate or consumption or production but in a way that is like how do you find a sense of belonging in all of this oppression or marginalization or being forgotten.”

Here’s your chance to get personal with Nwofor—tune into The Storytelling Podcast to hear her story.
