Hello and happy winter! I hope you are getting some use out of your toboggans and fireplaces! I will admit that winter is probably one of my favourite seasons, not only because I am a true Edmontonian at heart and will love whatever this city throws at me, but also because it's usually when myself and the Poiema Gals are creating new work together! This year is a little different, however, because each of us are working on separate projects for this summer, but we have recently watched something that stirred us up and we feel a need to create something due to the film, "Miss Representation". "Miss Representation" is an award-winning documentary film that exposes how mainstream media contributes to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence in America. Now if you are a man, please don't think this is just for ladies! Please watch the trailer and visit www.missrepresentation.com if you want to know more. It's very eye-opening and humbling. Myself and the Poiema Gals are very passionate about women leading and bringing awareness to how western civilization represents women in the media. I can't wait for the show that will come from this!
