Fire performances, dancing, live bands, stilts, contests, Burlesque, Gorlesque (I knew this existed, didn’t know what it was called) Alt Culture in general. The face painting was pretty cool, love the “Dia de los Muertos” look, the Catrina look on people. This is just one part of Calgary’s diverse art scene that a lot of people don’t know about.
Had the privilege of working on this video telling stories of how local business was affected by the floods in Calgary. Spent two days talking to business and charities in Mission and Inglewood.
Powerful stories, strong and brave people who’s livelihood was in danger. Inglewood and Mission are bouncing back but they need the support of the city, and not just government. Shop local and take the time to visit with them, their stories will amaze you.
