Going pro
Profile by Jane Ledwell

When Brielle Ansems plays the role of Josie Hogan in A Moon for the Misbegotten at the Watermark Theatre in North Rustico this summer, she wants audiences to see into “the performances we put on for each other every day.” She reflects, “Others don’t always see our selves in ways we see ourselves...

Music lover
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Debbie Atkinson volunteered for the first East Coast Music Awards that came to Charlottetown, in 1996, out of love of music and challenges.

Herweyer, Elena

Fine design
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Design, like culture, surrounds us in the tiniest and most seemingly insignificant details of our lives, a visual and functional language we all speak.

Profile by Jane Ledwell

For the Art in the Open festival one year, Monica Lacey created an installation conjuring an abandoned house in the woods. “Drunk teenagers stumbled into it,” she recalls. “I don’t even know if they knew it was part of the festival—but they started to have a house party…The suspension of disbelief they had was so magic.” Eventually, she had to kick them out

Owning it
Profile: by Jane Ledwell

It wasn’t Ashley Condon’s plan to launch a full-length album of songs (Can You Hear Me, with many collaborators) and a brewery (Montague’s Copper Bottom Brewing, with her husband Ken Spears) within weeks of each other in one busy fall.

Practicing art
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Little did Glen Strickey know as an eager-beaver twelve-year-old that some of his uncle’s Sunday afternoon jam-session guests, who welcomed him to play saxophone with them, were world-famous musicians like Oscar Peterson or Oliver Jones.
