Hi, my name is Gracelynn Lau 劉頌恩! Born and raised in Hong Kong when it was still a British colony, I self identify as a settler of colour in Canada who is dealing with my own colonial healing. I'm a daughter, auntie, ecovillager, circle facilitator and nature-based expressive arts therapist with the Ontario Expressive Arts Therapy Association.
Since 2017, I have co-facilitated 1 day WTR experiences at OUR ecovillage, where I also facilitated ecovillage design education program (Gaia Education), sustainable wellness retreat and school program. In 2021, I will launch a year-long WTR online bi-weekly gatherings project in Hong Kong.
Currently a PhD candidate in cultural studies at Queen’s university in Kingston, Canada, my research project examines the relations between personal and intergeneration healing and social change. The study applies expressive arts therapy in community-based participatory research to investigate the implications of intercultural healing on indigenous-settler relationship.
If you are interested to collaborate, send me a message! Love to hear about your work.
