Our first FN@GL featured literary icon Margaret Atwood in conversation with The Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson about Culture in the time of COVID-19. They were joined by celebrated improvisational comedians Colin Mochrie (Whose Line is it Anyway?) and Debra McGrath (Little Mosque on the Prairie), along with performances by multi-talented musician and theatre-artist, Torquil Campbell (co-lead singer/songwriter for Stars) and Broadway star Chilina Kennedy (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical).

Have you, your family or children created a video of something creative while in isolation?
We're looking for short performance art pieces that demonstrate how the creativity continues and evolves in these difficult times. If you're interested in sharing your musical or dance pieces, songs, poetry readings or skits please send them to email@example.com and we might use them in a future Friday Night at the GhostLight.
Thanking you in advance.
