Featuring Paul Magnusson, Jeff Hessel and Shannon Reinholdt

Calgary Arts Development and Bamboo Shoots

This city is bursting with creativity and events! Each month, web series host Adora Nwofor chats with some amazing Calgary creatives to find out what they’re up to and to help you plan your social calendar.

In this episode of Living a Creative Life, we take a deeper dive behind the scenes of this month’s Chinook Blast festival: Big Art’s Paul Magnusson shares what he is most looking forward to. Jeff Hessel of Tourism Calgary talks about the inspiration behind the festival and how it started. Shannon Reinholdt of aGoGo reveals her secrets for staying warm while performing outdoors in the winter — and why she loves Chinook Blast.

All this on Living a Creative Life.
