'I believe art can inform and transform. It is a powerful route to explore what we have in common and how we can heal individually and collectively. At a time when barriers are being put up across the world, it is vital to see how art can also unite us, how we can use traditional cross-cultural forms to explore important contemporary issues, while also having fun!'
