“It is an honor to be the president of Open Sky Creative Society. The Society is very important and unique to our community, bringing in high caliber arts and cultural programming that is open to all to experience and participate in. I am constantly amazed by the diversity of creative talent that Open Sky supports. Some of my favorite moments of Open Sky have been the opportunities to take part in incredible workshops ranging from silversmithing, moose hair tufting, fur mitt making, to parka and traditional vest making. Also being able to watch world class musicians and artists perform in an intimate setting in our community has been a rare opportunity”.
