I've been back in Toronto a month and haven't seen enough of it. I get home and feel drawn to work. Work on grant applications, business plans, letters and meetings and figuring out programs and bla blah blah.... who decided to make a business out of Art?
I've been laying the ground floor of Aluna Theatre, the company Bea started five years ago, that we have nurtured together (time permitting) since. This year we have an opportunity (thanks you Canada Council for the Arts) to create something more sustainable out of it. It's more work now, but it does pay off in different ways. We're just beginning to discover some of those payoffs (like a space to do your thing - sure it's an office, but it's space). It's like looking into the neighbour's yard. Through an opening door.
