Angela Lyonsmith is an artist and art therapist. She works for the Therapeutic Arts Program (TAP), an initiative of Global Alliance for Africa, because she wants to give aid and comfort to children in Kenya and Tanzania who were left orphaned by HIV/AIDS. Angela’s passion also led her to open ‘Gather’, a community art studio and playspace in Evanston. For Global Activism, we’ll ask Angela about how her work has inspired family and friends to work for the benefit of people suffering around the globe. PHOTO: Courtesy of Gather.
