Let’s Talk About It

Profile by Jane Ledwell

Siobhan Wiggans is using her temporary term as a curator at the Confederation Centre Art Gallery to bring about long-term effects: She hopes to bring as many in to the gallery as she can, and to engage and inspire them in ways that keep them returning.

Follow Your Heart
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Becoming a documentary filmmaker and coordinator of the Island Media Arts Co-op were not set goals on a clearcut path for Mille Clarkes, but they now seem to be natural culminations of life choices marked by curiosity, adventure, and community-building. “Looking back,” she says, “I see I had gathered film industry and arts administration jobs, but not on

Clear-Eyed Skeptic
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Television producer Larry LeClair rarely does local press. Part of the reason is practical: when aiming for an international market for television shows, you aim for international press. Part of the reason is cultural. “On PEI, the great sin is bragging,” he says. “When we ask, ‘Who do you think you are?’ it sounds like a question you’d like to answer,

Her Honour Barbara Hagerman, the Island’s recently appointed Lieutenant-Governor, can’t stop smiling. “Every day since I’ve been in this house,” Fanningbank, or Government House, “it’s like being on stage at Carnegie Hall.

Fear of Exposure
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Every day’s a different lie,” warns Graham Putnam, as a disclaimer to anything he might say. For Graham, even statements about himself are subject to the restless, perhaps diabolical, creativity that drives his work as an actor and as a writer and performer of sketch and stand-up comedy that pushes the boundaries of what can be said and done on-stage on a

The Drama of Living
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Entertainer Jonah Anderson is as ambitious for Eastern PEI as he is for himself. A student in an acting/singing/dancing “triple threat” theatre training program at St. Lawrence College in Brockville, twenty-year-old Jonah is not waiting to put his training and his passions in action and on stage at the St. Peter’s Courthouse Theatre.

Giving It Up for Her Art
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Theatre artist Laurel Smyth knows the necessity of sacrifices for art. For her role in Shear Madness at the MacKenzie Theatre this summer, she'll give her long sleek hair over to scissors, in favour of coiffure more suited to a character she describes as “big and loud and fun-loving—with a huge sense of entitlement.”

She’s donating her body to
