Draw More Income EP8: David Swann

Hey there, it’s another Draw More Income episode! This time with the wonderful David Swann, MD, MLA (http://www.davidswann.ca/). We were extremely lucky to have spoke with him and only wish this episode was put out months ago when it was recorded.

David Swann has been in Alberta politics for years and years, fighting for the Alberta Liberal party from the level of MLA to Leader of the Opposition Party. He has championed a great many human rights causes such as accessible healthcare, environmental issues, addictions treatment, and even global peace/anti-war initiatives.

In today’s episode, he sits down with Graeme Dearden to put on his artist’s rights hat, chatting about things like Status of The Artist Legislation, the Artist’s Resale Right, and generally how to get stuff done while working with the government.

Early in the podcast, we mentioned Dr. Swann’s involvement with a dance troupe called Le Caravan. This was such a great project and you can see the extent of Dr. Swann’s commitment to the arts in Canada.

So, if you are interested in watching his jaw-dropping performance with them, go here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7U2BIn4aM0

Today’s episode was recorded and edited by Graeme Dearden.
The interview was performed by Graeme Dearden with David Swann, MD, MLA.

QUARTIER ÉPHÉMÈRE’s mission is to support the creation, production, and dissemination of visual art; it seeks at once to question the role of art and artists in the heart of the city, and to promote that role. By investing in ‘in situ’ projects within vacant or abandoned industrial buildings, QE attempts to explore our urban zones and to reach a diverse public. Quartier Ephémère runs an International Residency Programme, a France-Québec Exchange Programme and a new residency programme for curators of the Americas. The Canada Council for the Arts is offering an international residency program at the Darling Foundry for foreign professional visual artists from outside of Canada. Two artists are awarded four-month residencies. Each resident receives a grant, which contributes towards living expenses, travel fees and production costs. (more…)
