First attempt Profound and sound Black +

Facilitating community development through sound & play


As a socially engaged artist, I use the arts, sound, and play to facilitate social change. My mission is to help individuals and communities connect through the power of music and the arts. My main area of work is Youth Leadership through the performing arts, where I empower young people to step into their creativity and leadership to tackle the challenges our societies are facing with the heart.

My approach is based on the principles, methodology and code of practice of Musicians Without Borders (organization of which I'm a trainer and workshop leader), as well as multi-disciplinary elements including play, theatre, dance, and performance. Elements which I have acquired and further developed through training programs such as "Arts for Peace and Solidarity" from Kinderfreunde - Klaffer Austria: (Erasmus + European Commission) and my work with the associate members of the Play, Perform, Learn, Grow and the East Side Institute communities.

I support individuals and communities who have experienced significant stress due to factors such as refuge seeking, cultural clashes, extreme poverty, or social injustice. I also work with teams and organizations to strengthen bonds, communication, and a sense of belonging through workshops and trainings.
