The Puzzlebox Team! Mae Sot, Thailand, 2011.

The Puzzlebox Team – Mae Sot, Thailand, 2011.

The Puzzlebox Art Studio is a creative social enterprise for Burmese migrant youth located in Mae Sot, Thailand. The program focuses on training young people for a career in the arts!

In 2010-2011 I was fortunate enough to work with the Puzzlebox as an artist/mentor.  Currently they are doing a fundraiser and could use all the help they can get– only four days left!

I believe <<<  Art transforms lives. >>>  Programs like this are a direct way to make the world a better place to be.

Here are a few photos from when I lived in Thailand.  Enjoy!  As always feel free to comment– I love the dialog.  Thanks for reading!  <<<>>>
