Supporting people from different cultures, backgrounds and disciplines to create together is one of the most rewarding experiences I have had as an artist. I feel this work is vital for the wellbeing of our society and an essential platform for self-discovery, communal understanding and the nurturing of important human values; respect, love, giving and sharing. Being part of this journey as an artist, program participant or supporter is a transformative choice. We all have gifts and capacities that can contribute to our evolving wellbeing. I sincerely hope readers can connect with us and we can start a dialogue around how we work together and help one another.
