VIDEO: Breaking the Ties that Bind Us | Lora Northway | TEDxThunderBay

“Lora speaks of helping youth discover pride and self worth, and points out art can break the ties that bind us, not only with our own growth, but in acceptance of others.

She makes the case, art is the teacher, and we are the students, if we can stop and listen to what is being said.

As an outstanding artist in her own right, Lora would willingly give up her own work, just to help others discover the healing properties of creative art.

Lora was named one of this year’s Emerging Cultural Leaders by the Artist-Run Centres & Collectives of Ontario (ARCCO). The first-time award celebrates people who are ‘exceptional, emerging, creative champions.’

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
