“The arts have the power to establish trust, build confidence and develop initiatives.”
For 23 year old Monica Gutierrez, art has become a means of livelihood. Up until this year she has worked as a freelance artist, studied community Arts and Video Art at York University, organized interpretive dance courses, shown her video and documentary works at renowned Latin film festivals and all the while inserting reflections of her own upbringing in Colombia.
