Mary Krohnert is an actor, writer, art therapist and social practice artist. In 2013 she founded the LivingRoom Community Art Studio, an Art Hive and registered charity that provides opportunities for people from all walks of life to connect with one another and express themselves for free in service of community development and individual well-being.
Dani Crosby is an artist, commercial illustrator, arts educator and community collaborator. Art has become many things for Dani - a service they offer, an experience to share in academic settings. But before any of these things it serves as a place to put the parts of themselves that have nowhere else to go. Dani recognizes how lucky they are to have this outlet. That is why many of Dani's favourite projects involve working collaboratively with the public to help individuals find a place to put their stories, express their identity, see themselves represented and share their experiences.
