Thoughts About Art and Community
I think Art is a therapy which can pacify a human from head to toe and inside out. By dancing people can improve their fundamental skill movements as well as can reduce their stress. This dancing is really helping the immigrant women who are here, feeling alone and looking for the friends. Our dance class serves this purpose.
By doing wall mural or banners, I think I am helping community to feel being in the home away from the home as my projects are related to folk arts which people can recognize easily. And those banners or mural reminds them about their own culture which is soothing for them.
Currently I am working with Community Matters Toronto who is offering exercises through dance forms including Bollywood dance form for all ages. Along with this I am offering a henna workshops with St. James Town Arts for the community.
I also do volunteering in community events.
