Last night I heard Joella Foulds sing at the Celtic Colours concert in Port Hawkesbury. She’s a splendid pianist, and she has a rich, powerful voice. In addition, she’s a fine songwriter, which I hadn’t known. She’s spent the last 22 years off the stage, working in arts administration, notably in shaping the Celtic Colours Festival itself,...Read More
You spoke. We listened. You told us overwhelmingly that you preferred the photo that showed me talking with Mi’kmaw canoe builder Todd Labrador, beside the Wildcat River. But some of you found the people lost in the background. So we cropped it closer, clarified the text, and we’re using it as our thumbnail. Thank you! Here it is: Meanwhile, Warrior...Read More
There it is, in a nutshell. In every creative project, there’s a tension between creating the work and helping it find its audience. For months, we’ve been finishing the keystone pieces of the Green Rights multi-media project (www.GreenRights.com) – a feature-length film called Green Rights: The Human Right to a Healthy World, and a book entitled Warrior...Read More
In 2012, the Green Interview team vowed to make a feature-length documentary about the human right to a healthy environment, and Mother Nature’s right to be respected and protected. It’s a right recognized in 180 of the 193 UN member countries — but not in North America. The film would tell inspiring stories about citizens and lawyers in South America, Europe, Asia and Africa who are using the courts to fight for clean air and water, healthy food, an end to the reckless abuse of the natural world, and environmental justice.
Done, my friends, done! In September 2016, the GreenRights film will be released — right here on TheGreenInterview.com!
And so will its companion book, Warrior Lawyers, whereRead More
In 1998, I published The Living Beach, my most extensive piece of environmental writing — an account of the fascinating dance of wind, sand and water that makes beaches, live, grow, shrink, die and adapt. The book won a bunch of awards, but when the publishing house was sold to a multinational corporation it instantly went out of print. (The hardcover is...Read More
It’s fun to go online and find your opinions being debated by others. A few years ago, being considered something of an expert on beaches beause of my The Living Beach project (which took the form of a book, a video, a magazine piece, a TV show, etc.) I was asked to name my five favourite Nova Scotia beaches. Nova Scotia? I said. Heavens, I can name five...Read More
We’ve just finished – well, almost – a major overhaul of my own web site, www.silverdonaldcameron.ca. A few things are still missing, like some introductory text on the “Books” page, and a bit more detail (plus a photo) on the “Speaker” page, but overall I’m very pleased with it. The site had become very cluttered and...Read More
I’m happy to see that my recent book is getting some attention. A Million Futures: The Remarkable Legacy of the CAnada Millennium Scholarship Foundation was published last September. Here’s a nice little Q&A that Halifax writer Richard Levangie does with recently-published authors: http://seventhestatepr.com/blog/2011/01/26/459/ And here’s...Read More
