A Tad Overwhelmed
To my amazing friends and supporters! I hope this post finds you well and thriving.
Many of you are aware that I am transitioning away from running Artfest and embarking on a new project: The Artist's House, a destination for creative pursuits in Nottawa.
The journey ahead is both exhilarating and a bit daunting (under statement) as I work to bring this dream to life. There's something magical about creating a space dedicated to fostering creativity, and I couldn't be more thrilled about what's to come. I am still strongly drawn to providing opportunities for others to grow their creative muscles and celebrate the arts.
But, let's be real—I'm feeling a tad overwhelmed with all the preparations needed to make this dream a reality. I have always relied on the support of my community to achieve all that I have done. That's where you come in….
I would love for you to join me on this incredible journey. Your support, ideas, advice, and guidance mean the world to me, and I believe that together we can make The Artist's House a true haven for creative minds to expand and prosper.
Have you ever embarked on a similar adventure? Do you have any pearls of wisdom or insights to share? I'm all ears! Let's make this journey filled with collaboration, inspiration, and boundless creativity by building a fantastic line up of workshops, creative gatherings and more. I will keep you posted every step of the way.
