After our final workshop (#9), I created a new website to host all the photos and videos for Our Stories Co-creating and Sharing project…I hope it to be an opening ending, so others can continue creating and sharing their works…Please check surewaypress.com/en for all the information.
I want to thank all the participants for joining us to express and present their stories through poetic reflection and various arts. I hope that these artistic processes have created a cultural awareness in the wider society. Thank our partners: CPAC, HSK and CCNEWS. Thank Ontario Arts Council for the grant.
The above shape poem: The Red Maple was written to celebrate 2016 Canada Day in Mississauga. I was glad that the city appointed me for the first Poet Laureate in 2015 and supported many of my poetry projects for the city. Now happily received this from our city and Mayor Bonnie Crombie.
