What inspires you about the work that you do?

I am continually inspired by the transformative power of art and ideas. Conversations, art and performance are all tools to convey the human experience and guide cultural thinking and doing. Our sphere for influence widens day by day- it’s exhilarating and daunting and certainly worth exploring.
