I wanted to do something special for our first year anniversary and then I found this website, I sent over the audio of our wedding vows and Stuart mixed them with some of my thoughts about our first year and then putting this a picture I picked out. It was the perfect gift that captured how I felt.
I had a really great experience working with Stuart on this, my mom cried when she opened the portrait and was able to playback the audio of me and my two sisters giving gratitude for all she has done for us. It was moving.
I was super impressed with the whole experience, Stuart called me up and gave me allot of one on one attention in helping me form my message. He then did the edits and put together a wonderful art piece I presented to my spouse for his birthday, he was really moved !
I have always been an activist, I have found my passion in community radio amplifying and creating spaces where voices can be heard and imagination can be acted upon by building communities of interest. I have been co-producing a show called Latin Waves Media over the last decade and will continue to do so, my background is in communications and Sustainable Community Development which interplays nicely with my media work. I just completed an MA in Liberal studies which challenged me to look at social change in a more nuanced way, what are the best ways we can contribute to heal a broken divided world.
Investigating how our current ideas and beliefs are heavily influenced both good and bad by past events caused me to think about the power of memory, of our ability to Remember to Remember. This process caused my own introspection which is why I started this memory portal, it is my belief that through memory we can recover a sense of self awareness and a sacred honouring of place. My hope is that we come to know we are a single whole with each other and nature, when we hurt nature we hurt ourselves.
