Imagine bringing together some of the world’s most distinguished artists to tell the story of arguably the most important advancement in the recent history of humankind.  That advancement is the vaccine.  And just some of the artists we’re talking about are:

 Imagine working with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to make something called “The Art of Saving a Life”.  Who could make something like this happen?

Meet Christine McNab. Christine is my guest on this week’s show.  She is a photographer, development consultant, TED speaker, and many other things (including being a fellow Canadian). Christine is one of those rare and wonderful people who can connect things.  She was the designer and driver behind the Art of Saving a Life and joins me to share the story of this amazing initiative.

However, there is more to Christine than this (and to understand how the project came to be you need to understand how Christine approaches things). We discuss a wide range of topics, including her most recent project “A River Runs With Her”.  We also cover:

  • Christine’s background in journalism;
  • Her work as Director of Communications at the World Health Organisation (WHO) – and we get into things like SARS, risk communication and related areas;
  • Moving on from that role (and taking risks);
  • The Art of Saving a Life of course
  • A River Runs With Her
  • And much more!

 I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation and am very excited to share it with you!

    Thank you Christine and Ben for this fantastic podcast. This is so much worthwhile than hearing about the US election. This is truly an inspiration. In the Indigenous community there is a saying about the importance of helping others as to reach a 7th generation. I think Christine did. I will post it on Facebook.
