CreativeMornings Vancouver: ​Restart

GVPTA was pleased to collaborate in 2018 with CreativeMornings/Vancouver on Restart, special evening edition of CreativeMornings, on November 27, 2018 at the Vancouver Playhouse. We were joined by three talented creatives from Vancouver’s theatre community: Landon Krentz, Heipo Leung, and Yvonne Wallace, along with moderator Janet Smith, The Georgia Straight’s style and arts editor, for an intimate conversation about the artists' creative journeys and the role of creativity in their lives, careers, and practices.
