For the past few weeks, I’ve been volunteering with a Calgary organization: This is My City (TMC). TMC brings art and people together no matter what income bracket or social status because art builds bridges and lessens differences.
Currently I’m part of a TMC initiative that puts visual and theatre artists, musicians and writers as instructors at homeless centres around the Calgary. I’m teaching a four-week workshop at the Calgary Drop-In Centre called Write YOUR Story. Participants learn to tell their tales in their own words.
Part of my volunteer work is to write blog posts for TMC. Here is my first one: http://bit.ly/13ot60D
