“Art is for everyone! It is what brings colour into the world, it gives you the ability to express yourself, and it facilitates connection, empathy, and community. It is what helps keep us grounded during a difficult time like this one. It’s wonderful being part of Vanguard and I am looking forward to projects to come!”
