“I love art because it gives people an opportunity to explore and express the fullness of who they are. It offers a neutral and accessible territory that breaks down barriers and gets us to work together.”
Stemming from this belief in the power of art, Charlotte developed and began YU’s Creative Life program in 2013. Creative Life was born from a vision Charlotte had to build on the assets she saw in the youth of East Vancouver who display immense creativity, resilience, perspectives and abilities that can affect change.
Charlotte’s Kiwi accent and artistic flair has blessed YU and the youth they serve since 2008.
Together we can transform the world our youth live in—but we can’t do it without you.Take Action
