“Little things make big things happen.” -John Wooden

In a time when change is happening so quickly, we have to acknowledge the little things it takes to be the big people we are. Little things make big things happen. Big things make change occur! We are the change.

Who we are:

We are a group that aspires to inspire change in others. By igniting the flame within ourselves we ignite the flames of people who participate in our workshops, art exhibitions and classes. We teach empathy through art and inspire others to do the same in their classrooms and events.
