Evie Ruddy is a digital media artist, freelance journalist and creative writer. Their short documentaries and essays have been broadcast nationally on CBC Radio. Their print work has appeared in Reader’s Digest, the National Post, the Toronto Star, and numerous other publications. In 2013, Evie was a runner up for the City of Regina Writing Award.
Evie has been an artist in residence for the Cathedral Village Arts Festival, during which they created and produced a 90-minute self-guided audio walking tour of the Cathedral Village. The tour moves people – literally and emotionally – down a path while learning about some of the people who are part of an artistic community with a rich history.
As a 2014 Culture Days Animateur with SaskCulture, Evie traveled across the province, facilitating workshops on digital storytelling. They have worked with hundreds of people, ranging from children to seniors, to help them create digital stories about their lives – using their own voices and photographs.
In 2015, Evie was Co-Creative Director and essay writer for a multi-platform documentary, Portrait of a Family, produced by the National Film Board for the 150th anniversary of Canada.
They live and work in Regina.
