Over the years, my artistic pursuits have often enabled me to engage with other talented creatives and luminaries in the public space. Through these connections—in the context of visual art projects, educational collaborations, media interviews, and allied public engagements, I have thus been able to help educate and inform important audiences about significant aspects of civic culture, history, and the evolving challenges of our times.
