Message from Arlene Regarding Ontario Culture Talk

Hello wonderful fans!  I was honoured to be a guest in one of the Ontario Culture Talks last night at the Mississauga Civic Centre in the Great Hall.  I shared how arts and culture has affected my life and some ideas of what I am currently doing to grow the scene in the world around us.  There were many incredible ideas spoken out last night by those that attended (there must have been 140 people!) and YOU also have a chance to put in your ideas by visiting https://talk.ontario.ca/culture/ and filling out the survey.  We can only make a change if we change 🙂
Hope to see you this Friday at Hirut!
<3 Arlene

CoolEuroUK Session #6 & #7 ~ Message from Arlene!

Hi everyone! It’s Arlene checking in 🙂 I have a couple new CoolEuroUK sessions for you to view – mainly because I want you to see the beauty that I was able to witness during my travels. #6 is from Amsterdam and #7 is from Nice, where I am currently.  I’m using this week to write write write! I made an outrageous goal of creating 50 songs before I go home – aaand I decided to make that goal when I was near the half way mark of my tour. Whoops. Sooo, I’ve cut it down to 25 songs.  I have written 14 so far.  I like to give myself outrageous goals sometimes! You should try it, you can surprise yourself!

CoolEuroUK Session #7: Nice Beach

Funny fact: I was singing the song “Belle” (from the musical Beauty and the Beast) in my head on my way out the door.  That movie took place in France, didn’t it?  And! The streets here are just like you see in the movies: narrow, scooters and motorbikes making their way through and clothes hanging to dry outside the windows.  Yes, I was amused!

CoolEuroUK Session # 6: de Ruyschkamer (<–Make sure you visit that venue when you go! What a great place!)

This was fun.  I wish I stayed in Amsterdam a little longer, but I can always come back.  The cyclists have it made here.  Not only do they have their own paths, but they have their own traffic lights and they pretty much dominate the roads.  I think I would be really nervous being a cyclist here.
Ok! See you when I get back to Canada!! Check out my tour dates for when I’m performing in the GTA!
<3 Arlene
