So, every two years the Glenn Gould Foundation awards the Glenn Gould Prize for "a unique lifetime contribution that has enriched the human condition through the arts." While it is based here in Canada, the award is an international one as is the judging panel. One of this year's judges was writer Neil Gaiman who I follow on Twitter so it has been interested to read his tweets about it.

Anyhow, the 2020 prize laureate is Canadian indigenous filmmaker, singer-songwriter, and visual artist Alanis Obomsawin. Gaiman tweeted this morning that when they tried to contact her to tell her of the award she was out working on a new film. She's 88 years old.

I heard her interviewed on cbc awhile back and was so impressed with her work. I'll look for more now.
