Episode 5 – Festivals, Friendship and Popcorn

On this month’s episode, we take a field trip over to the Garneau Theatre.  Now the home of Metro Cinema, and a great place to go to celebrate Canada’s 150 with their “Home Movies” series. We learn about the hurdles women in Edmonton’s arts industry are facing, and how the SkirtsAfire festival is working to address those challenges. We find out how the Terra Centre gives teen moms and dads a place to reach their potential. And, we hear about Gurvinder Bhatia‘s unique approach to create an endowment fund with his friends.
