Organization: Facilitating Power
Title: Founder
I am inspired to support groups like Baktun12 use the arts to activate informed and inspired action for community health because as a teacher, artist, and capacity-builder, I have witnessed firsthand the power of the arts to open us up to each other and to our own power. I am convinced that the only way communities like East Salinas can solve the economic and social problems we face is through participation by residents, and B12 is facilitating that participation through interactive theater.
