Tanya Aguiniga…

LA based furniture designer/maker, Tanya Aguiniga whose stage set you would have seen at TEDxSAArtistsVillage…

Recently, I saw Tanya’s work at CAFAM and was immediately awed…She graciously
agreed to create a unique lighting installation for our TEDx stage.
Alas, it was not meant to be.

Tanya was wonderful to work with.

“Ideas worth Spreading” Golden West College Students…

Celebrated International Peace Day at Golden West College yesterday… Loved the collegiate atmosphere, the vibrant, engaged young people.  They even had some “ideas worth spreading”… Here they are – –

  • Clean water initiative utilizing natural resources, power: Robin Sun
  • Trash into Treasures, turn everyone’s trash into quality items.  In Rwanda they turn newspapers into beautiful bracelets: Sarah Holcomb
  • Government needs to stop bailing out “Big” Banks with TARP money paid by taxpayers and use it towards the smaller, community and credit union banks to lend out money and stimulate the economy!: Oscar Sanchez
  • A worth without strangers.  Where there will be a way to know everything about everyone, the whole truth nothing but the truth: Sarah Holcomb
  • and anonymous, community development with a focus on one defined neighborhood at a time..

and Vanessa Cao.  Her inspiring idea is to nurture dialogue conversations and group synergy, so that creative breaththroughs can happen within individuals and between groups of people, the dialogue about creativity, peace and activism.
