TATAMAGOUCHE – A newly organized series of meetings aims to highlight some of the unique people that weave the colourful fabric of this community.
Longtime Tatamagouche resident Elizabeth Spence, a musicologist, is spearheading the initiative and is inviting everyone to join her as she learns more about her neighbours.
“I am constantly amazed at the number of really, really, interesting people who have moved here over the past number of years,” said Spence.
The first meeting of the series will be held on Jan. 26 at 7 p.m. at the Tatamagouche Library in the Patterson program room.
A panel of eight guest speakers will each give their perspective on the topic, ‘What is art?’
Spence will act as moderator of the panel, which will include author Linda Little, psychiatrist Pippa Moss, professor of ecology Vilis Nams, physicist Brian Gaulke, sculpture and social worker Sydney Blum, playwright, author and director Gary Blackwood and filmmaker Angela Pressburger.
Each guest will speak on the topic for about five minutes followed by an open discussion.
“They are all incredibly interesting people,” said the organizer.
Spence said she welcomes ideas for future talks.
