Catalyst For Change
Kym Hines

Kym was born into an unhealthy upbringing with many years of generational abuse and alcoholism. Born female, Kym made the transgendered switch to male at a time it was widely mistreated. Many years of poverty, abuse and oppression drew him to self-destruction—nearly taking his life. See what incentive Kym used to turn his life around and give him the motivation to not only change his life, but to change the world too.

Participant Reflections

Catalyst For Change
Kym Hines

Each workshop produces a creative participant reflection – a personal take away from the story they just heard – that is voluntarily shared with the wider community.
We believe that personal narratives have the power to connect individuals across socioeconomic boundaries, and that the rich creative ability of our community is the most effective tool we can wield against the stigma that prevents necessary social change.
