My name is Carly Friesen, and I work as a program manager in the nonprofit sector. I also write and maintain my blog here, which focuses on the many social issues facing our communities today.

I am also a multidisciplinary artist who creates works often inspired by the social issues I witness around me. I primarily work with textiles and acrylic, however I enjoy exploring other mediums as well. You can see examples of my work in my portfolio here.

I am passionate about gender advocacy, community engagement, human rights work, and furthering social change through collaboration.

I live and work in Toronto, Canada
