Question 12: Are there any noteworthy events that influenced your career?

Transcription


An important event that influenced my career would probably have been in 1995 or 1996. As part of the print course curriculum, our professor Jacques Arsenault brought us to Aberdeen Cultural Centre as volunteers. It was Art en Boîte, Imago studio’s annual fundraiser. I think that it was that day or during that period that I realized that there was a cultural life beyond the university so that we could remain in the area and continue to produce, there was equipment available, a place to continue my production, a studio. I think that it also opened my eyes to the possibility of working in my field. Before, I always asked myself, what I was going to do with a bachelor’s degree in visual arts. I think that I found it a bit reassuring in that sense.
