My name is Carly Friesen, and I work as a project manager and organizational development advisor in the nonprofit sector. I also write and maintain my blog here, which focuses on social issues - especially issues around gender. 

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 women's rights, anti-racism work, human rights work, community engagement, and how art can be used to further social change.

I live and work in Toronto, Canada
