Welcome to another edition of Crater Conversations, a weekly show live on CKLU now on at a brand spanking new time Tuesday’s at 5PM! So, what exactly is the show all about? Join your host Crater co-founder Jess each week as we sit down with a local guest, we’ll talk about their projects, their passions, and the things they love about our little rock town! We’ll be sitting down with performers, entrepreneurs, community leaders – really anyone with a story. Personal anecdotes, first inspirations, childhood follies, who knows where this will take us but we can’t wait to find out!  Can’t catch the show on air? No worries, all our episodes will be posted online afterwards for easy listening. If you’re inclined to tune in live you can dial in to CKLU 96.7 or stream live at 5PM every Tuesday.

In this week’s episode we’re indulging in all those nostalgic feels – boy bands and all. We’re interviewing muralist and installation artist Nico Glaude. Nico is the mural coordinator for Up Here festival which has helped us beautify our cities walls over the past 3 years bringing in artists from all over the world to make their mark. One of his favourite mediums however is to make a statement with temporary installation projects. A big fan of gorilla art Nico creates giant scale versions of nostalgic items. Run into a giant Blockbuster video VHS case at the Townehouse, a Zellers bag in a parking lot, or a giant Sunmaid Raisin box at the Sudbury Market you know who to blame. We talked with Nico a bit more about all the different projects he’s been at work on and where all these crazy ideas come from.
