My Mark Matters

My Mark Matters™ is a profoundly compassionate arts program that challenges participants to step outside of themselves – in order to look back within – and discover the unique gifts they hold for the world. Acclaimed artist Fotini Galanes (Buffalo, NY) shares her personal journey and presents a series of activities involving objects of art to explore where beauty is found and the importance of the marks we have and the marks we make.

“My Mark Matters teaches us about love and the contributions we each bring to the world. It is an important vehicle that can create empathy and awareness. Your program offers a chance to reflect personally and professionally and in so doing will create a better world.”
