Devine Architecture 

by James Mullinger

James Mullinger interviews Ontario-born, Quebec-trained and New York-career architect Sanaz Shirshekar on moving to New Brunswick and doing her most personal work to date. 

The Petitcodiac Baptist congregation has been a vital and vibrant part of this southern New Brunswick, Westmorland County community for 182 years. Built in 1879, its church building was a majestic example of Gothic Revival architecture. Originally built on Renfrew Street, it was relocated to the corner of Old Post Road and Renfrew Street in 1910, where it served as the very heart of congregational life for the people of this tight-knit community. Pastor David Woodworth, at the helm since July 2011, welcomed over 200 people to the Sunday-morning worship services. Even more people used the space for workshops, family gatherings, parties, classes and other vital activities.

The Fairytale of Ticklebelly Hill

by Morgan Leet

Atop a hill in southern New Brunswick sprawls scenic farmland. The red post-and-beam barn within the scene is 150 years old, still intact and true to its history but enhanced by modern touches.

It is surrounded by greenery and wildflowers — and salty air from the close-by ocean. Inside the barn the warm lighting, modern decor and statement chandelier all work to create a one-of-a-kind wedding venue, Ticklebelly Hill. Just a short drive away from the historic and popular tourist destination of Saint Andrews, New Brunswick, this magical venue is the brainchild of owner Sarah Conley.

Atlantic Pod

by James Mullinger

It was a walk along the Halifax waterfront in the spring of 2019 that forever changed the lives of British-born Rhys Waters and Nova Scotian Jonathan Burns.

They shared an outlook, a passion for podcasting, and the notion that this was the right time and right place to launch Podstarter.

And that is how the company was born in June 2019. Podstarter uses podcasting content to break through the marketing clutter to connect with people. Now one of Canada’s leading podcast-production companies, they create shows for some of the biggest global companies as well as producing podcasts that are some of Canada’s most listened to internationally.

The Acadian Giant

Andrew Nickerson meets New Brunswick's Hollywood Star, Robert Maillet

Robert Maillet grew up in the small community of Sainte-Marie-de-Kent. The size of his hometown is the only thing small about him. Whether it be his sevenfoot frame and imposing physical stature or the large entertainment platforms he has been a part of for almost 25 years, he certainly does not fit the profile of the small-town Maritimes most of us think of. I was glad to have the opportunity to talk to him about having success in both professional wrestling and the acting career that followed.

Lesley Hampton's Wolfpack

by Jennifer Wood

How the Indigenous Designer is Leading the Shift towards Body Positivity and Inclusivity in the Canadian Fashion Industry 

At the age of 25, Newfoundland and Labrador– born Indigenous fashion designer Lesley Hampton has received more industry praise than most would earn in a lifetime. In four short years, her designs have been featured in major publications like Vogue and Glamour in the UK and Allure, to name but a few. Her collections have been cherished, worn and modelled by national and international public figures, artists and athletes, including Adrianne Haslet, Serena Ryder, Penny Oleksiak, Margaret Trudeau and Lainey Lui. A nomad by design, Hampton’s formative years were filled with experiences of relocating and adjusting to new places throughout the world — an offshoot of her father’s work in the mining industry. At an early age, she began to develop an appetite for and understanding of socio-cultural concepts, marking the genesis of what we appreciate in her clothing lines today.
