Art Is Responsibility

On this episode, we explore the ethical responsibilities of being an artist and an educator. First we hear from Christine Sokaymoh Frederick about becoming the Citadel Theatre’s first Indigenous Associate artist. Then we talk to The Maggie Tree about their upcoming production of 9 Parts Of Desire. And finally we chat with Rachel Carr about a rural Albertan school’s problematic take on “Women’s Studies.”
