A throw back to when we sat down with Jason from Apt613 to talk all things craft

Posted by Amanda Cockburn on

An excerpt...

In 2015, she built an environment where people could be brought together who were genuine to their craft and in their character. Up until that point, Amanda remembers coming home from working her day job only to start work on her passion project into the wee hours of the night...

Last year we had the privilege of sitting with Jason Myerson, contributor to Apt613, THE online publication if you want to stay current on all things Ottawa culture. Jason didn't want to talk about the typical scratch the surface details, but rather then nitty gritty dig down and tell us why details about me, the community and how things happen.
