Hi, I am K – a cultural producer and community-engaged artist with a focus on creative projects with a social purpose.
I passionately advocate for open arts and culture as dynamic vehicles for positive societal change and I love crafting meaningful shared experiences for the public that promote diversity, inclusiveness and collaboration. I specialize in producing cross-cultural and intergenerational projects at the intersection of creativity, social innovation and play.
For almost a decade I have been working on a variety of international projects with World Culture Open - a global network of cultural creatives, based between Beijing and Seoul. While I still collaborate with World Culture Open, at this moment I am also working on a range of creative projects as an independent cultural producer, based between Toronto and Ottawa, but available worldwide ;)
When not busy with the above or chasing my little son, I love doodling my thoughts and stories to life under the moniker al.fergani, and am currently working on an illustrated book that shares the undiscovered beauty of Uzbekistan's culture - my first home.
If you have an idea for a creative collaboration in mind, I'd love to chat!
Please drop me a line on all things art, play and meaning at
P.S. "al.fergani" means "from Fergana" - my little hometown in Uzbekistan
