If there ever was an art whisperer, it is Lora.

She speaks of discovery of pride and self worth, and breaking the ties that bind us, not only with our own growth, but in acceptance of others.

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

A woman of passion who shines a light on the way art can help us.

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
