Show Notes
Rick speaks with 2 multi-talented, multi-disciplinary guests from the Maritimes, Jeremy Dutcher and John Leroux. Jeremy is a Polaris Prize and Juno Award-winning performer, composer, activist, and member of Tobique First Nation in New Brunswick. He's an outspoken advocate for Indigenous and LGBTQ+ issues, and his first album Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa bridges all kinds of gaps. John Leroux, a GenXer like me, also hails from New Brunswick, and is not only the Curator at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton, but an architect, PhD art historian, Rick's very good friend, and (Johnny’s words) a “very poor runner”.
It's a super-lively chat that covers
How art connects us
Two-spirited (identities)
Including everyone in the circle
Being yourself onstage
Losing languages
Curating inclusion
Courageous conversations
Jesus Christ Superstar
And where to put your Juno.
