Nina Haggerty – Here’s Nina Award Gala – 2023

Lindisfarne Productions was happy to once again to team up with the team at the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts to sponsor and create the videos for their annual Here’s Nina award gala event! Each year, these award videos are aired during the award gala event to highlight the work of award recipients. We love coming to the Nina to see the fabulous work being created by their artists. The impact the Nina makes on it’s participants is inspirational.

This year we had the pleasure of profiling Nina Haggerty artists: Aaron Harvey, Aba Garbrah, Carl Philip, Carrie Reed, Roy Skoreyko. We also created a video for volunteer Guy Voisey.
