Don’t Look Up

Don’t Look Up is meant to serve as an allegory for climate change but could just as easily be seen as a film about the mishandling of the recent COVID pandemic.

Understanding Gained

Slow travel gives you the luxury of time to experience and understand new cultures. Studies show that travel increases understanding and empathy towards other cultures. It allows us to see the connections between cultures that let us understand our similarities and differences.

Darcy Luke

I first started creating art from a very young age, although it wasn’t until I was fifteen that I started beading. I watched an elder bead while I was at an Indigenous youth conference, and I immediately fell in love with it and knew I had to try for myself.

Power Protection for Your Computer

We had a power outage the other day.  Not for very long. Only about ten minutes. Fortunately, I run my equipment off an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) so my computer didn’t go down and I didn’t lose my work. My optical network terminal (fibre) and wifi router are on their own UPS so we didn’t lose internet connectivity even with the power out.

Change a Mood, Not a Mind

As an artist I’ve attempted to make a career out of trying to make the world a more beautiful place. I understand that beauty is quite subjective, but my overarching goal is to treat the planet, and humanity, like I’m on a multi-decade hike—to leave the place better than I found it. It turns out that that is a more complicated task than I ever thought it would be.

You, Before Connecting to Others

We show up for the humans in our lives. As soon as we wake up, we are taking out our pets, making breakfast for others, organizing our day around who needs what. We support our partners, our kids, our colleagues, our family, and our friends without even giving it a second thought.

Equality in Health

We go though our lives with the benefit of only our own perspective. We see our experiences and the experiences of those around us through that one perspective, which makes it difficult to fully understand what the true experience of others is like. As a result, it can be challenging to recognize when equality in health and social care is lacking for other people or even ourselves but us not recognizing it doesn’t make it any less of a concern.

Angela Morgan: 20 Years an Artist

Angela Morgan is the embodiment of femininity. Fierce in her passion to create, nurturing to those around her, and giving to those who ask. She comes by her traits honestly. The daughter of farmers, the value of creating things with your hands, the payoff of hard work, and the optimism of having to believe it will work out is deeply seeded in her.
