"Healing and Community Building Through Creative Action"

Lily Yeh
Artist, social change activist, founder- The Village of Arts and Humanities, and Barefoot Artists

“When I see brokenness, poverty and crime in inner cities, I also see the enormous potential and readiness for transformation and rebirth. We are creating an art form that comes from the heart and reflects the pain and sorrow of people's lives. It also expresses joy, beauty, and love. This process lays the foundation of building a genuine community in which people are reconnected with their families, sustained by meaningful work, nurtured by the care of each other and will together raise and educate their children. Then we witness social change in action.” - Lily Yeh
