Facilitator: Lily Sigie
Lily is a Mexican-Canadian performing artist and cultural developer; she holds a BA in Performing Arts and a Master's Degree in “Development and Promotion of cultural projects.” She has over 20 years in the performing arts sector as an actress, facilitator, theatre producer and arts manager. Sigie is the author of the book: “Development of Soft Skills through Art” (2014). In 2017 she arrived in Calgary, and by 2018 she co-founded SpanicArts (Hispanic Association of Professional Artists LTD). Since then, she has been part of different cultural projects within the artistic community. Lily is a proud Rosza alumnus, having done their three programs: RAFT, RAMP and REAL.
As a creative and cultural developer, one of my basic principles is to transform realities through art and culture to collaborate with identity and, therefore, with a sense of belonging and existence within communities.
