Exploring Arts & Equity in Community Engaged Arts.
Over the last three years I have been working with SKETCH and the Neighbourhood Arts Network to organize and program a series of professional development events, 1-2 day retreats, multiple videos and a 250 person symposium all exploring themes of equity, arts for social change, decolonization, truth reconciliation and ways in which we can create more vibrant, empowered and inclusive spaces as artists.

The Love & Lust Project's Photo Kissing Booth was conceived by Ella Cooper in collaboration with Sean Howard (photographer and passion researcher) as a fun and cheeky way to celebrate all the forms of love and lust that can be found throughout the LGBTTIQQ2SA community and beyond.
During the Toronto Pride Parade & World Pride, we photographed OVER 1,700 PEOPLE in partnership with with Toronto Pride, the International Human Rights Committee and World Pride to celebrate global human rights for all!
