It’s a new year and a new lineup of speakers for “Ideas Powered by Passion!” a lecture series about encouraging new thinking through speech and music. This series is meant to uncover the passions of our people, listen to them share their stories, and allow them to inspire one another.
He’s a local ER doctor, community activist, environmentalist, tri-athlete, and former political candidate. But, who is Chris Milburn? What inspires him to continually give back to our community? Come hear all about Chris’s passion to create more livable communities and what is behind all that zeal!
During the evening we will also hear from Andrée Crepeau of Velo Cape Breton about what’s going on at Velo. And, local recording artist Carleton Stone will also be on hand to showcase his musical talent. Carleton and his band, Carleton and the Big Wheel have been nominated for an ECMA award! The band’s debut album has been nominated for “Rock Recording of the Year” at the 2010 ECMAs being held here in Sydney in March.
Ideas Powered by Passion with Dr. Chris Milburn takes place January 20, 7-9pm at the Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design. At the end of the night, guests will be invited to Governor’s Pub to network and have a chance to continue the dialogue with the guest speakers.
