A Springbank Stroll with Natasha George

In this week’s episode Daniel and special guest Natasha George take an early Fall stroll through London’s glorious Springbank Park. Natasha and Daniel talk extensively about ‘community’ and how London fares (or doesn’t) as a welcoming city. Natasha speaks passionately about her life growing up on the Kettle Point Reserve, her transition to an urban lifestyle and her hope to ease that transition for young First Nations folks through her ongoing advocacy work. A passionate theatre lover, Natasha provides meaningful insight on what we can do as a theatre to be more welcoming to a wider array of theatre-lovers, beyond our current patron base. Together, Daniel and Natasha dream of future possibilities for the Guy Lombardo Pavilion and the simple pleasures of taking a walk in an inspiring setting ... with an ice cream.
