Our Volume 6, Issue #13 curators are The Refugee and Immigrant Advisory Council (RIAC)
The Refugee and Immigrant Advisory Council (RIAC) is a charitable organization that assists newcomers to Canada and St. John’s. We don’t try to integrate newcomers, but rather give them the tools they need to participate in the community to the best of their abilities. Bringing people of all backgrounds together to celebrate the diversity and culture. We also provide information to the general public about the challenges many newcomers face, in order to make our city a more welcoming place that is better-equipped to interact with people from diverse origins and circumstances.

Vanessa Cardoso is a Multidisciplinary artist, street performer and clown hailing from Brazil, with a passion for contemporary theater and body movement awareness, especially related to Flamenco dancing. The bodily awareness and theatre techniques acquired through workshops on the Laban, Klaus Vianna, Jerzy Grotowisk methods, among others, have highly influenced her acting performances.

“Vuelo directo” is, as the Spanish meaning of their bandname might suggest, a bunch of newcomers to St. John’s who decided to also bring a bit of Hispanic pop-rock to the Rock… so there is no “original material” here…just those songs that you (well, and possibly your parents and even grandparents, depending on how young you are and how groovy they are) grew up with and probably nobody else ever played live in Newfoundland…Yes!!! You can now enjoy live renditions of your favourite classics by the likes of Soda Stereo, Nacha Pop, Mecano, Enanitos Verdes, Los Secretos, Radio Futura, Amaral, and many more. Stemming from from Ecuador, Mexico, Spain, and Venezuela, the core lineup of the project includes Gabriel Vitola (lead guitar), Carlos Vinueza (Bass and backing vocals), Rober Martínez-Espiñeira (lead vocals and guitars), and Jesus Marroquín (percussion).
Michael Conway is an entertainer, performing magic over the past decade, he has played for crowds of all ages and sizes, from intimate parties to sell out theatres. Michael’s style of performance is a blend between Vegas showmanship and hilarious comedic timing, he’ll surprise, shock, and mystify you.
