Episode 13: Angelica Poversky
Angelica Poversky is 5’3″ of vertically challenged creative passion who wants to use spoken words to create movements of thought. She’s always trying to think of new ways to use words and is perplexed by language. She is the founder and festival director of Richmond’s first youth-led outdoors arts festival, Arts in the Park and is always on the go when it comes to artistic event coordination. If you see Angelica in her natural habitat, she is probably reading her first poetry chapbook “She Is”, hosting a radio-show or fearing proper punctuation. Angelica is Vancouver’s Top 24 under 24, Richmond’s 30 under 30 and a Richmond Arts Award Winner. She’s been on the author panel at National Culture Days, a speaker at The Top 25 under 25 Canadian Environmentalists Awards and the feature performer at the CHIMO Violence Against Women Conference. She’s a member of the 2016 Vancouver Youth Slam Team.
Art Talking Women is a series of intimate conversations with a variety of hosts where female-identified artists discuss their creative process as well as their relationship with community and technology. Art Talking Women celebrates and showcases practicing Canadian women artists to the world through evolving podcast technology, internet-based social networks, and digital distribution. This project was initiated by Margaret Dragu, the winner of the 2012 Governor General’s Award, and developed into a three part collaboration between Cinevolution Media Arts Society, Margaret Dragu’s DWI (Dragu Worker International) Production and VIVO Media Arts Centre.
