While Alicia was busy painting and producing new Two Girls and an Elephant greeting cards(more on that soon) Jacquie was in Canada promoting her book The Gift of an Elephant. She was thrilled to be interviewed live onstage by host Fred Hacker for “A Day In The Life”at the Midland Cultural Centre. The interview was taped by Rogers television to air in the fall.
Then it was off to Port Stanley to join friends singer Denise Pelley and artist Lucy Ogletree for another edition of Music, Art and Africa. This was the second event in support of the Art and Music Camp in South Sudan, a project of Canadian Aid for South Sudan. Approximately $3000 was raised for this camp which is the highlight of the year for hundreds of children in the village of Gordhim.
Jacquie’s next stop was London, On where she caught up with lots of friends, including Nick Paparella of CTV. Click on the link at the top of the post to see her interview on Paparella’s People.
