Co-founder and Executive Director of L’Art ici SVP & Festival Inspire
Lisa is a Community Development Hack living in Moncton Canada. A project junkie, who turns ideas into community movements globally for over 15 years. She studied IDS at Dalhousie Uni and ESD from Murdoch Uni in Australia. Living on a boat taught her that change is the only thing that remains constant. She has a robotic hand from Japan, a fake tooth from Australia, and a yoga teaching cert from India. Her spirit animal is the Otter, Chinese zodiac year of the monkey; and she's an Aquarius. Not an artist herself but a believer of life itself as an art; she is constantly looking at walls and sees the city as a blank canvas for art and culture. Lisa likes coffee and people who invite her to have one over talks about cool ideas.
