Episode 48: Unganisha and an artist on skates

Featuring Wunmi Idowu, Alèn Martel, Melvi Alvarado, Christahh Ahh, JorDen Tyson and Nicole Grenon

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

In this week’s episode of Living a Creative Life, we celebrate Black History Month with Woezo Africa and its premiere of Unganisha, a film that celebrates African traditions and dance, and some of the local artists that bring it to life with their talent and vision. We also meet a figure skater who dances on ice — she will compete at the upcoming Special Olympics Canada Winter Games in Calgary — and creates dolls of clay, fabric and yarn.

All this on Living a Creative Life.
