I do experimental and imaginative ethnography with early-life migrants – who identify as Millennial Polish Canadians – which seeks to examine and describe their lifeworlds so that we may better understand how we construct, experience and perform our inner life in everyday contexts.
Applying anthropology as a consulting methodology, I also incubate arts ecologies by working with all components of a creative community – including the artists, the infrastructures that support them, the social spaces in which they work, and the relationships that bind those constituents – on professional and creative development using reflexive research to advance local, organic arts practices and the social profit sector.

From the beginning, my credo was that art has never been and can never be a representation of or a mirror held up to the reality of life… Art is an answer to reality. This imperative need to provide an answer is probably the very essence of the creative process.Tadeusz Kantor
