Calgary Arts Development & Bamboo Shoots

Join Adora Nwofor for another celebration of creative Calgarians who follow their inspiration, pursue their passion, and live their most authentic lives while making our city so vibrant.

Today we see the importance of legacy with Shantel Tallow, we meet ambitious filmmaker Ximena Rios, then we leave our mark at an artist run co-op—Alberta Printmakers.

There’s even more on the next episode of Living a Creative Life!

How do you live creatively? If you have a creative story or a project to feature or know a talented person we should talk to, email or tag your posts with #yycLCL on social media.

Also, we want to see your time-lapse videos of your projects from beginning to end. So, set up your cameras and get to it.

We’d love to feature them on a future episode!
