Hackathon to create awareness for Depression in Immigrant and Refugee communities. Hosted by 1951 Coffee, and Thon X
It was an amazing twelve hour workspace. Where folks from multiple disciplines came together to work on tackling a cause- increasing awareness around Depression in Immigrant and Refugee communities. There were so many great ideas and lots of passion in the room.
Before the participants got to work, they volunteered to engage in a demonstration of the RICHER model. The participants volunteered to share some work that reflect how they felt. This is the pre and post reflection of how they felt in their mind, body and spirit.
Below is a word bible that summarized the expression of the participants pre and post the session
Before the RICHER Model

A submission sent into the Voices from the streets movement was sent in and I will be presenting at the performing the world conference in NYC Oct 10th 2014. I was asked to respond to a few questions. How does your art form affect your identity? And who you are becoming, or have become? AND, does your art form have any intersection with issues of social justice. I’ll be there installing myself live in NYC Times Square. More to come.
