    During this pandemic everyone is constantly adapting and adjusting. There is no clear sense of when it will end, but we have to keep going and doing what we do best. This attitude is what keeps Arts Etobicoke strong during challenging times like this. In our chat with Akshata Naik and Heather Ervin we learnt that feedback, teamwork and remaining positive are key to exploring and creating new opportunities.

    How a Comedian Copes in a Pandemic

    Much like surviving a career transition from banking to comedy, Stephan Dyer knows he will be able to get through a pandemic. The first 2 years of “bad” stand-up didn’t stop him from pursuing his passion and he has since performed over 300 shows around the world. The COVID-19 pandemic is a vulnerable time for the arts sector, so we checked in on Stephan to see how he’s coping. We talked about what he is doing to run his public speaking school, MalPensando, his thoughts on productivity during a lockdown, and why he thinks artists are powerful.
