Featuring the Calgary International Film Festival, Hal Eagletail, Ireke Amogi, and more

Calgary Arts Development & Bamboo Shoots

This city is bursting with creativity! Each month, Adora Nwofor sits down with some amazing Calgary creatives and gets a behind-the-scenes look at their process.

On the next episode we get to explore the therapeutic benefits of creativity, the Calgary International Film Festival gets the popcorn ready, we meet the creator of Calgary’s first ever Afro-Canadian sitcom, and we explore a cultural event that bridges communities.

All this and more, on Living a Creative Life—be sure to tune in.

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!
