Stay with me, please, as I think out loud here. That may be the way most of what follows gets added; impulsively, excitedly – planned and unplanned.
My point of view will be as a member of the Ottawa arts community, and that includes the city of Gatineau and western Québec, as well. It excites me that we have artists working away in all of these different corners of our region. There should be no shortage of things to talk and think about around here. I hope the neighbours and friends and families of these artists are paying attention and understand how fortunate they are that these artists choose to stay and work in this area.
