Karen Sim is a busker who played a leading role to lobby the city to relax the rules on buskers and improve the image of buskers.
This is one of the pictures I took of a gathering of buskers and city representitives, to discuss new rules for buskers in Calgary. It was held at Olympic Plaza in downtown Calgary to let people know that buskers can now legally perform in far more places, and without requiring a permit or payment of fees. There was a mix of announcements, discussion, and performance. More information is available on Facebook in the group called "The Calgary Buskers/Street Performers Community".
You can visit Karen’s MySpace page for more info on her.
