During the COVID-19 pandemic, I am meeting all clients exclusively online.
I use a resource-oriented and empowerment-based approach to community arts facilitating. My intermodal uses of the arts play an integral part of the workshops offered. The experience of creativity and art making in a communal spirit inspires empowerment, resilience, and validation.
I have over 15 years of experience as an arts facilitator in addition to a background as a Montessori elementary school teacher. I bring my ability to work in challenging group dynamics and solution-focused practices as a facilitator. I have worked with many local and international arts-based organizations and agencies that uses the arts for positive change.
I offer dynamic workshops and presentations on mental health, equity-based work, community arts, in addition to the findings from my master's thesis Empowerment Through Hip-Hop and Expressive Arts Therapy: Respect the Architect.
I work closely with arts-based organizations and community members to develop and deliver arts-based programs and initiatives that respond to the needs and goals of the community they serve.
Artistic modalities may include:
Poetry / Visual Arts / Music / Movement / Theatre
