THE ART OF COURAGE.

Heather’s true story begins not in Africa, but in the studio. As Heather says, “I was born an artist. I always knew this was what I was put on earth to be.” In 2008 Heather took a trip to Uganda, Africa to perform humanitarian work in the effort to eradicate malaria. Ever since she set foot on the African soil, her heart was won over by the environment and the people.

The Art Of Courage grew out of Heather’s need to give back. It began with a wall of more than 80 paintings chronicling the stories of survivors, called The Wall Of Courage. The Art Of Courage is the logical next step for Heather and her community.

BEYOND THE WALL

The story that led to the creation of The Wall Of Courage

The first few trips I took to Africa I could feel a shift inside me. I felt like I was completely myself, at home in my skin and present in each moment. When I would come home to Canada I would feel a reverse culture shock. In Africa I felt people were happier in the simplest moments, truly embracing there inner being. After my 4th and 5th trip and return, I no longer felt different here nor there. I was truly my who I am with no more masks.

As The Art Of Courage has become more formalized we wanted to bring the focus back into Canada. Our hopes and dreams are to create more projects like the Wall of Courage, but have them speak to issues close to home. It is about creating art to shine a light on the people who are suffering, but also to tell a little bit about them, their struggles and their journey through Courage.
