About the speaker

We’re inviting co-host of CBC Ottawa News at 6 , Lucy van Oldenbarneveld to the CreativeMornings Ottawa stage as this month’s speaker on Craft! Lucy will share some of the twists, turns and “yesses” that helped shape her craft and made a difference at critical points in her life and career.

As the co-host of CBC Ottawa News at 6 , Lucy is known around the newsroom for her vibrant energy, quick wit and love for all things Ottawa. When she first joined CBC Ottawa in 2003, she worked as a field reporter and Friday host of the popular radio show Ottawa Morning , where she was an empathetic interviewer with a sense of humour. She then moved to television, hosting the flagship daily newscast in 2006, and welcomed co-host Adrian Harewood to the desk in 2011.

Her work has been recognized with a Canadian Screen Award nomination, a Gemini nomination and the Gold World Medal for Best Talk / Interview program at the New York Festival.

About the theme:

A craft is the instrument in which the authenticity of your being is communicated.

Your craft is like a portal to your inner world, and as an artist, it’s your duty to pull it out of the vortex. Craft is a catalyst for our identity and the soil for cultivating meaning.

It behooves us to realize that who we are and become—our values, beliefs, thoughts, observations—influence what comes out of the violin, sketch, or photograph, not the other way around.

This month’s global exploration of craft was chosen by our Mumbai chapter, illustrated by Hemali Vadalia, and presented by Adobe.
