Written in part by Lisa Wilton and published in Metro Calgary, April 3.

This Is My City Art Society (TMC) works with agencies like Inn from the Cold, the Calgary Drop-In and Alpha House to pair clients with artist mentors.

“TMC artist mentors are out in the community all year doing a variety of projects,” explains co-producer Sally Truss. “Festival time is a chance for us to take the best of what’s been going on during the year and share it.”

The festival begins TODAY! Check tonight’s launch at 7pm at the Central Library’s theatre.
