Q&A with Artslandia’s Katrina Ketchum
Portland magazine Artslandia launched in Vancouver last year and offers a curated overview of what’s happening in the Arts & Culture scene in the city. We sat down with Katrina Ketchum, Associate Publisher of the magazine, to talk about her Vancouver experience.
Q&A with Katrina Ketchum
What is Artslandia Magazine?
Katrina: Artslandia is Vancouver’s go-to-guide for the performing arts! We’re a print magazine and an online community for music, dance, and theatre.
How do you use Modo for Business?
Modo is amazing. We’re able to book the perfect car for what our daily grind requires. We tend to go with the smaller city car for easy parking, and the bigger SUV’s for longer, bigger cargo commutes. We also love the more posh rides for night’s out at The Orpheum.
What’s your favourite Modo car?
The Fiat 500 Abarth in candy apple red. It’s the car we simply now refer to as “apple”.
Where do you Modo?
We’re always driving here-and-there dropping off magazines! We frequent Surrey, Burnaby, Richmond, West Van, North Van, Coquitlam, and of course, Vancouver proper. You might see us at Vancouver Art Gallery, The Cultch, Granville Island, etc.
What does “Own less, live more” mean to you?
There’s something powerful about shared ownership that’s hard to articulate. It’s the sense of belonging and community that you build when you know you’re a part of something bigger than yourself.
How does Vancouver’s arts & culture scene compare with Portland?
Both are so incredibly vibrant! And the greatest thing is, so many BC artists travel down to Portland to perform, and vice versa, so it’s really a connected scene.
