Draw More Income 2017 EP11: Eveline Kolijn

Hey everyone, it’s another episode of The 2017 Draw More Income Podcast. Today, we are releasing an interview with Calgary artist Eveline Kolijn recorded last month at The Alberta Printmaker’s Society. Eveline’s extensive and unique background in the arts made her an obvious suspect for sitting down to talk shop about being an artist. She’s showing her work constantly, is on all sorts of boards around town, regularly does artistic community projects, and all of this is AFTER having a completely different life studying social sciences in the Netherlands. So, sit back and listen to her chat about stuff like public art, board membership, and switching into the fine arts later in life.

Also, I’d love to say thanks to The Alberta Printmaker’s Society for letting us record this interview in their space. Listeners, if you’re ever looking for another cool Calgary arts organization to hang out with, A/P is pretty great.

Draw More Income EP10: Draw More Income Panel Discussion

Here’s the newest episode of the podcast! This time we bring you back to September with our recording of the Draw More Income Panel. It was filled with insight from our panelists Derek Besant, Lee Deranger, Brittney Tough, and Kari Woo on how they manage to make a living as an artist. Afterwards, they help our audience answer their own questions about the professional aspects of being an artist. All of this was conducted by the ever-intriguing Chris Carson, executive director of Visual Arts Alberta – CARFAC.

We were so happy to have hosted this talk and to be putting podcasts out again. We will be releasing a new episode on the 15th of each month now, so stay tuned.

We’d also like to give a big thanks to ACAD for hosting us and to Elephant Artists Relief for co-hosting this wonderful event with us! Elephant Artist Relief Society (EAR) is a registered charity that provides practical resources to Calgary visual artists in order to help sustain their well-being and livelihood, contributing to a vibrant cultural community.

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
