Community Animator, Deepening Community
Remote Office: Guelph, Ontario
As a Community Animator, Devon is passionate about joining people together in their efforts to deepen community. She is enthusiastic about facilitating connections within communities and neighbourhoods. In her dynamic role, she draws from her past experiences engaging and encouraging learning among various communities including at-risk youth in the inner city, Alzheimer’s patients in a long term care facility and the University of Winnipeg’s vibrant academic community. Devon has witnessed first-hand how art and critical thinking can inspire positive social change and instill a sense of belonging and reflection for all communities.
Based in Guelph, Ontario, Devon lives with her husband and three young children. Through her own artistic practice of illustrating large narrative pieces that encourage personal reflection, she uses her voice as an artist to share stories as she endeavors to spark empathy and understanding.
