I spent the weekend at the TIFF Bell Lightbox for the 14th Canadian Arts Summit. This year's summit theme was What Can We Do to Strengthen the Place of the Arts in Canada? Starting Friday afternoon I attended a series of panel discussions and conversations with moderators and guest speakers like CBC's Peter Mansbridge, Jack Diamond and Bruce Kuwabara, Zaib Shaikh, David Cronenberg and Wajdi Mouawad, all of them great sources of inspiration generously sharing their thoughts.
But maybe even more important for me was the fact that the Summit provided me with an opportunity to meet so many of my colleagues from all over the country, many of them for the first time. The huge distances in this country make it difficult for us to see each other regularly. I really enjoyed having the time to meet, talk and get to know each other better.
