The 3-day finale of #yyccc 2017-2021 was lit!!! It’s hard to believe the writers were able to get so many great things resolved. Also, so many cool things have been set up for the next show: 2021-2025 (which will start filming on Oct 18). Here’s my recap of the highlights: 1/24
The finale opened w emotion: 1) #yyc-based members of the #TokyoOlympics/#TokyoParalympics #teamcanada were honored. 2) tributes to the retiring members of #yyccc, @DruhFarrell @EWoolleyWard8 @ChahalGeorge @Ward4Ward1 @CouncillorKeats & @nenshi, induced tears & good vibes. 2/24
After almost exactly 4yrs of work initiated by my learning about #BenefitDrivenProcurement @FCSSAAoffice’s AGM right after the 2017 #yycvote, getting an NoM passed by #yyccc, & development shepherded by @momentumcalgary’s @HareCourtney, we’ve approved a great policy!!! 3/24

Choose Yer Own fest was one of my favourite #yycarts events ever. A hand-made festival where any event goes. Cardboard robot fight? Breakfast with your grandma? Full re-enactment of the movie Labyrinth? You want it, you make it happen.
Speaking of magical Calgary events, @wreckcityYYC. The first Wreck City was one of the most amazing #yycarts events I've seen. It was packed with families, folks who I never see at installations, exploring this ode to soon-to-be-gone homes. Gentrification, growth & creativity.
My view of this stuff is heavily biased. I work in the arts. I live in a building with multiple governor general's award-winning artists. I am lucky to see a different side of Calgary than most folks. And I'm leaving out a lot of favourites just so this doesn't drag on even more.
