A few of you may recognize Erika Annette from her time at Winsor Gallery; beyond being one of the ECUAD Award Winners whose work was showcased here in 2012, she spent a few months here as a gallery assistant, providing support to the Winsor 'family' throughout the winter.

Erika has since moved back to Finland, where her energy has been focused on her latest project: The Polkadot Revival, an anti-bullying resource for young people across the world. In addition to providing links to anti-bullying support lines, blogs, and communities, Erika has also been busy making touching, honest videos about her own experiences in hopes that her stories will give kids in need the support that they seek.

It's a generous endeavour that comes straight from the heart that we're sure will help kids from Vancouver to Helsinki in the years to come.
