I am so excited to be working on a great collaboration through the Airdrie Public Library with the Airdrie Writers' Group and local area visual artists. It's such an interesting concept, with a group of writers partnering with artists to create works that are inspired by one another. First, a writer views a piece of artwork created by the artist with whom they are partnered in order to be inspired to write 250 words - whether that be poetry, fiction, non-fiction, essay or whatever. At the same time the artist will be inspired by a piece of written work to create a visual art piece, whether that is two or three dimensional. The process has begun and will be unveiled during ARTember at an Open Mic event at the library in September. I absolutely love collaborations...it's like you can just feel that creative energy. Can't wait to see what comes of this!
