It supports these artistic disciplines: dance, film, multidiscipline, music, theatre, visual art, and writing.

Lisa Hurd and Fabian O'Keefe
- Lisa's Story

Location: 21 communities

It’s becoming rarer with time to find opportunities to hear first-hand experiences from WWII. The same year Hitler came to power, Lisa Hurd was born in Vienna, Austria. She can still recall the days of calm beforehand, how daily life changed, and when the yellow Star of David was affixed to their family home’s doorway. Hurd’s uncle knew Angela Lansbury’s grandfather who was a British politician with a son-in-law in need housekeepers, which allowed the Hurd family reason to escape to London. She’s now visiting schools with Fabian O’Keefe to share her story as part of an educational workshop tour funded by ArtsNL.
