Find ways that work for them…and myself


One thing about running youth programs, it forces me to troubleshoot creatively after every session.

Not that we have had a lot of “troubles”, I call it challenges and learning processes.

I like the challenges, and I’m glad that I am ready for them.

Great opportunities are for those who are ready.

Since early April, I have been conducting “Your Voice is You” creative voice project in partnership with North York Community House. This 6-week project is proudly funded by Toronto Arts Council’s Platform A Microgrant.

I have been working with 8 newcomer youths who are very brilliant in their own ways. What I need to do is to guide them to “find their voice”.


Connecting the Dots

Yuri Murakami (healing artist) and her husband Luc Bihan (sculpture artist) with their lovely child Amétiste, me, and the family of Ralph Davis, Emi Saeki and the very energetic Kaede.Dec 12th marked as one of the greatest moments in 2013 for me. Since I submitted an event proposal to East End Arts two months ago, I hosted this arts networking event called “Connecting the Dots” at Red Rocket Coffee on Danforth. Thanks to the managing director of East End Arts, Cindy Rozeboom, who was very supportive throughout the planning and hosting process,  I also had a lot of freedom in planning and decision making. Check out photos on Facebook here and see below, credit to Cindy Rozeboom from East End Arts.
