Paul Gallant likes to take things that some people say are improbable - and try to make them happen.
In his job as artistic director of Le Conseil des Arts, he's helped make the Festival de l'Escaouette a cultural - and an economic - force in the community of Cheticamp. This summer, they had attendance numbers of almost 16-thousand for shows like Soleil, le Grand Cercle, and la Soiree chez Gelas.
Paul Gallant also has a passion for working with kids. In August, he became the first-ever recipient of an award for youth development from the National Acadian Society. Steve Sutherland interviewed Paul Gallant this summer.
