So you've become a member of SSAC...now what?
When I first became a member I had just opened up my theatre company. I thought it would be a great way to be represented in our arts community and I wanted to network with like minded creative people. I soon realized that my membership card was not a magic portal to sudden world of artistic enlightenment [cue sad trombone quickly followed by lightbulb moment].....I was able to make SSAC work best for me and my artistic needs. How did I do that you ask? Just follow Sarah's Seven Steps to a Rockin' SSAC Experience.

After many years of whispers, it was 2003 when my body finally screamed that it was time for healing. I would embark on the long road of releasing old limiting beliefs and coming back to my authenticity. I spent most of my time in yoga studios and on meditation cushions, drinking green smoothies and inhaling lavender essential oil. I was definitely benefitting from my dedication to my self-care practice but something was missing.

The term chainmail is derived from the French maille, the root of which is the Latin word macula, the mesh of a net. It often calls to mind images of knights dressed in armour crafted of interwoven metal links that could block the thrust of a sword or turn the point of an arrow.

"Dyslexia will always be a silent reminder that the written world will never be completely mine. My family often says that there are times when I still write in Pameleze, not English. Living with my mirrored brain has also given me a hunger and an appreciation of books through different eyes. "
