"We're Not That Far": Living & Creating In North Bay, Ontario

From drawing to parenting to arts administration, a key theme across Jaymie Lathem's career is shifting across different practices and activities. In this episode, she talks to us about the impact of motherhood on her artistic practice, with funny anecdotes about raising children while being a creator and leading an arts organization. From our conversation you'll also get a better sense of what North Bay's creative community looks like, including the challenges of thriving alongside other industries and the wealth of creative talent and programming in North Bay, Nipissing. As a bonus, you'll get to hear about some of Creative Industries North Bay's upcoming initiatives to build support systems.
