A conversation about motherhood, identity, and community, inspired by Makings of a Voice, a theatrical song cycle written and performed by Dana Wylie, which makes its world premiere at SkirtsAfire.
- Dr. Wanda Costen, dean of the School of Business at MacEwan University and this year’s Honorary Skirt;
- Dana Wylie, the writer and performer of Makings of a Voice;
- Director Vanessa Sabourin;
- Cellist Christine Hanson.
This is the first episode in our Conversations series, which will share discussions that we've had the pleasure of participating in, using our power to make them available to a wider audience.
This is also part of a cross-promotional collaboration with SkirtsAfire to promote our People's Agenda project, which seeks to find out what Edmontonians want candidates for city council to be talking about as they compete for votes in the 2021 municipal election campaign.
The theme music for Conversations is by Dave Von Bieker, and the cover art is by Kirra Kent.
