I am privileged to be part of this significant multi-disciplinary show kicking off tomorrow night @ Annandale Creative Arts Centre
To be part of such a great initiative is humbling and empowering at the same time – using my God given gifts to try and make the world a better place for peoples whom are suffering is one of the highest callings.
