Proud to be featured as one of “12 women breaking new ground in the arts”, together with a bunch of brave and inspirational artists we are happy to call friends.
Meet 12 women breaking new ground in the arts on the TEDFellows blog -- photographed by Bret Hartman during TEDSummit in Banff, Canada; with words by Karen Eng. Thank you, two insanely talented people.
From the article:
"I believe it is time for an empathy revolution. A global movement calling for respect, equality, dignity, and justice, with art as a catalyst,” says Buhrer Tavanier. “Many human rights workers today struggle to translate formidable issues into a language that makes people care, and compels them to act. Mere facts and statistics don’t do the trick, neither do reports or statements on their own. Art, however, can create a visceral response. Art can make the distant feel personal."
