Canadian Spaces
Saturday May 20th, 2017 with Chris White
Margot Doucet, Mike Balfour, Manjit Basi, Ketcia Peters, Lisa Deacon, Cris Cuddy

Following "40 minutes of uninterrupted folk", Margot Doucet drops by to perform a few songs and tell us about upcoming events at the Mill Road Community Space, a lovely venue in Chelsea. Mike Balfour describes the long-standing positive relationship between people in the Gatineau Hills area and people in a needy community in Guatemala. We also hear from three people – Manjit Basi, Ketcia Peters and Lisa Deacon – who are involved in a participatory festival called "100in1day". The festival will take place on Saturday, June 3 and will feature numerous cictizen-led activities and "interventions" intended to make the city healthier, happier and more inspired, one small initiative at a time -- see for information. Later, we chat with singer-songwriter Cris Cuddy who plays at a venue called Batstone's Northern Ramble this evening.
