What words of advice do you offer to artists or organizations who are interested in expanding the reach of their work to communities in need?
Communities in need have much to teach us. There is plenty of talent and capability in the so-called communities in need. If we can approach the people there in humility, we would have more success in gaining people’s trust and discovering the hidden treasures in the community in physical, emotional, and spiritual situation. That has been my experience.
Do projects with people in the community that empower them, honor their own talent and sensitivity, bring beauty and joy. This will lead to success.
