Celebrating Canada in UAE

2006 Invited to Abu Dhabi by the Canadian Embassy there to 'Celebrate Canada' in the UAE with other illustrators, authors and performers.

I'd like to include a small piece written by acclaimed Ottawa-based writer, Rachna Gilmore, who attended this uplifting event and expressed so eloquently what we all felt:
"We brought and shared stories from around the world because Canada is a nation of people from around the world...Sharing our stories is a way of making connections; it is as symbolic and powerful as sharing bread , and a celebration and affirmation of our common humanity."
