    German Culture Alive - A SaskScapes feature series
    This is the sixth in a series entitled "German Culture Alive”, a special "SaskScapes Podcast presents" feature sponsored by the Saskatchewan German Council. Visit the website to learn more about the non-profit organization, its mandate, and its outreach.

    "He leaves behind an illustrated life" - Host Kevin Power is joined by Barbara Stehwien to talk about the legacy of Fritz Stehwien. Fritz (Barbara's father) was a German-Canadian artist who painted and sketched an estimated 10,000 works in his lifetime. Since his passing in 2008, at the age of nearly 94, it has become a labour of love for Barbara  to preserve these pieces, some of which have suffered deterioration  over the years.  This is a continuation of episode 102 featuring Waltraude Stehwien who was Fritz's wife. There is much to hear in that episode about their lives together and their path to Canada.

    German Culture Alive - A SaskScapes feature series
    This is the fifth in a series entitled "German Culture Alive”, a special "SaskScapes Podcast presents" feature sponsored by the Saskatchewan German Council. Visit the website to learn more about the non-profit organization, its mandate, and outreach.
    Waltraude Stehwien’s artistic sensibilities run so deep it is as if they form the very makeup of her DNA.  Her earliest inspiration was her father who was a visionary and a well-respected puppeteer in Germany.  Waltraude wanted nothing more than to follow in his footsteps and she did just that. Her family survived the turmoil of WWII where often they had to hastily relocate, leaving many of her father’s treasures behind.   Her life’s journey eventually brought Waltraude, her husband, and four children to Saskatchewan.  Only a few of her father's puppets made the journey. Waltraude was groundbreaking in bringing the art form to life in Saskatchewan.  Her second passion was a skill she also learned from her father. The art of scissor cutting (Scherenschnitte). Her work is often inspired by the landscape of our province.  Some of her work is currently on tour thanks to the support of OSAC.  
    This was a 40-year reunion between Waltraude and SaskScapes host Kevin Power who also shares a passion for puppetry.  The energy in the room during the recording was palpable as the two share insights on artistry in their lives.  This was a meeting of two minds and hearts, and a reunion to remember.

    This episode has a part 2 soon to be released,   (Episode 103) featuring Barbara Stehwien (Waltraude’s daughter) who shares the story of her father Fritz (Waltraude’s husband) who was a prolific and successful painter.

    SaskScapes - Episode 101 - with Yulissa Campos

    THIS EPISODE IS SPONSORED BY THE SASKATCHEWAN ASSOCIATION OF THEATRE PROFESSIONALS. 
    This is the fourth episode in a special SaskScapes Presents: The Theatre Series, Theatre in Saskatchewan

    Kevin Power is joined by Yulissa Campos, an Ecuadorian actor and playwright now living in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.   As she pursued her Theatre degree at the U. of S. she soon realized that she didn't see herself represented on stage. There was a distinct lack of performance options as a Latina woman - a vastly different experience than her artistic life growing up in Ecuador. 
    Yulissa founded Ay Carumba theatre and with that, has been on a mission to celebrate the Latinx community by bringing to life, characters that accurately portray her culture.
