Introducing our Festival Superfans

April 24, 2012

We?ve enlisted some Festival superfans to blog about this year?s event and more broadly the importance of the arts in young people?s lives. We?ve got six bloggers onboard including two youth and four
local mothers of young children.




Lisa Corriveau of The Sprog  is a stilt walker, artist, sewist, writer, cyclist, university student, east Vancouverite and mom to a toddler. She blogs about motherhood,
environmental issues, books, grownup issues such as getting in shape, as well as local places and spaces forVancouver Mom.  


Gwen Floyd of Left Coast Mama  and her husband and two sons (3 and 6) are passionate arts and theatres fans. They spend many Sundays on Granville Island attending shows
at Carousel Theatre or checking their kids into theatre camp. The Floyds are avid tweeters and online conversationalists.


Kerry Sauriol of Crunchy Carpets  is a mom blogging pioneer and claims her stories are about how not to parent your children. In fact, she is a passionate advocate
for local and community issues, and her three kids (2, 7 and 9 years-old) may beloud, and a bit crazy, but they are full of the joie de vivre that makes great families tick.


Alexis Hinde of Wave the Stick and her 4-year-old son, AKA the Imp, are proponents of downtown living and go most places by
bike or on foot. She is a writer, foodie, organizer, traveler, and she blogs about her life as a mom alongside her unique observations on life.


We?re excited to also have our two enthusiastic youth bloggers reviewing this year?s Festival: Aeden and Max are long-time Festival goers with an interest in writing and the arts.


Max Neck, age 12, of Mmm’s Da Word has a mission is to bring great food, fun and creativity back to the kitchen and onto your plates. 


We can?t wait to hear what they all have to say!
