          Trailblaze, Cork Midsummer Festival, July 1st 2012 Reluctant trailblazer, DJ and long time vinyl collector Stevie G, takes listeners on a journey through the musical soundtrack of his life. From his worship at the alter of Myles Davis to ‘getting’ Punk, from understanding equality through hip-hop and discovering his own epiphanies through pop, jazz and rap, his journey has been mapped by musical legends Aretha Franklin, The Clash, Michael Jackson, Prince, Madonna, U2, Tom Waits, The Pogues and Marvin Gaye, who are, for him, 'the real trailblazers'. Good music, he feels, is like falling in love for the first time. As a DJ, he ' is lucky enough to fall in love many times each day'.

            Trailblaze, Green Street Courthouse, 1st May 2012. Native New Yorker Margaret E. Ward made a mistake that brought her to Ireland where she now lives and works as an author, journalist and broadcaster. She is dedicated to giving women a voice in society – a passion shaped by the courageous journey of her Grandmother Maggie O’ Toole Rice. Margaret was a self confessed funny kid and her grandmother was her best friend and confidante growing up. She regaled a curious Margaret with colourful stories of ghosts, banshees, moonshine, Coney Island, and her time as a prisoner in Kilmainham Jail. Margaret asks us to pay attention and listen closely to the brave stories of those who have paved our way in the world.

            • 2012/12 Gregor Robertson - The role of creativity in problem solving, change, and politics


              from CreativeMornings/Vancouver / Added

              741 Plays / / 0 Comments

              December 7, 2012 was a special edition of CreativeMornings/Vancouver as Mayor Gregor Robertson was our featured speaker—the first mayor to take of their politician's hat and talk about creativity at any CM chapter worldwide. This was also the month we hosted our first "satellite" event in partnership with Likemind Vancouver with a live simulcast and realtime Q&A from a remote location. CMVan was proud to have Modo Car Co-Op as our featured support partner, who along with the ongoing support of GDC/BC, W2 Media Café, and new tech partner Matrix Video/Fusion Cine, allowed us to host our 15th consecutively sold out FREE breakfast lecture event. Addressing the topic of creativity, Gregor told his personal story, from his youth as a drummer in a band that covered KISS tunes, his travels across the Pacific in a fixed up old sailboat, his journey through China where his famous relative Dr. Norman Bethune was a hero of the Communist Revolution, and how he switched careers from organic farmer to innovative juice empire co-founder. He shared how growing Happy Planet by driving around Vancouver's neighbourhoods revealed his true passions and led him to politics. With very little political agenda rhetoric in his presentation, Gregor brought together his own tale of how he has tried to use creativity in his life and career, and how he is using it more than ever in his pursuit to make Vancouver one of the most livable and greenest cities in the world, with a diverse economy, and where homelessness and housing affordability are forgotten problems of the past—problems solved through creativity. Gregors talk was candid, infused at times with humour and occasionally very serious, and never did it seem just like a politician speaking to party talking points, which was appreciated by the audience who engage him in a lively question and answer period. A few notable comments by Gregor: On farming: “It was about constantly challenging ourselves to leapfrog out of the paradigm.” On problem solving: “Applying creativity has to be at the core of solving problems.” On creativity: "A big part of creativity is being open. You can either go with it, or stick to your current path.” On inspiration: “A lot of my inspiration comes from being in places that are full of life, like Stanley Park or among crowds at event like this.” On community involvement: “We can shape that change for maximum, positive outcomes if we use our creativity.” On how he made Happy Planet successful: “The only way to compete with the Cokes and Pepsis of this world is to be creative and hustle,” On growing Vancouver's economy: “I made a goal for Vancouver that we really focus on growing our creative industries—it’s the creative economy that’s growing in leaps and bounds.” On homelessness: “The only way we will get hundreds of people off the street is by doing something different.” On politics: “Politics is our most direct way to create change, but very few of us get involved directly.” The January 4, 2013 speaker will be origami artist Joseph Wu, who will be addressing the connection between creativity and happiness. Next month's presenting sponsor will be POWERSHiFTER and tickets become available at 11am on December 31 at http://creativemorningsvancouver.eventbrite.com.

                    Trailblaze, Galway Arts Festival July 2012 DIY’er, musician, presenter, filmmaker and activist, Dylan Haskins, shares his relationship to choice. There are choices which demand some mulling time- his decision, for instance, to run as an independent candidate in the 2011 Irish General Election. Then there are choices which demand an immediate, gut response. When faced with a split decision of touring the US on a 36 foot yellow school bus with one of his favourite bands, he jumped on the less ‘sensible’ option and hopped on board, a brash decision which would take him from the Arctic Circle to the The Grand Canyon radically altering the course of his life. Moving forward, keeping going, trying new things out and enjoying the ride have led him to an unexpected career path, underpinned with the belief and song lyrics, ‘sometimes motion is the only thing that keeps us alive’.

                      Trailblaze, Galway Arts Festival 28th July 2012 By way of introducing himself, travel writer, presenter, playwright and adventurer Manchán Magan shares a story of finding himself profiled on ‘randomcunts.com’. His reaction? To dive into the realisation that life is a glorious sphere of influence to play in marked with significant threshold points of crossing. Imaginary rabbit friends and herb gardens have conspired to help him to connect with the bigger part of himself. He chronicles epic journeys from the ridiculous to the sublime and some of the brave choices he faced along the way. http://www.manchan.com/
