I am delighted to be working with Yasmin Tayob and Michele Lopez and extraordinary students and volunteers on a wall installation at Alpha Secondary School in Burnaby BC.  The heart of the project is to encourage youth to project plan around a theme and produce an art piece for a particular space, all the while addressing social and emotional intelligence and personal empowerment.

The image of the anatomical heart has invited both personal and group exploration around the issues that churn in our hearts.  As a group, we celebrate the power of connection and creative expression.

Here is a random gallery of our last 4 after school sessions:
