From Harm to Harmony
Vancouver Artist — Laura Barron
Laura Barron is a Vancouver-based musician, writer, and community artist whose career as a flutist has brought her from solo appearances with the Boston Symphony Orchestra to artist residencies in Zambia. With a doctorate from McGill, she served as faculty at the Universities of OR, WI & N. AZ. Committed to facilitating creative projects that impact social change, she also mentors emerging artists pursuing interdisciplinary collaborations at the intersection of their own passions and purpose, as she does with the Conservation Council of New Brunswick’s From Harm to Harmony climate action art initiative. Here, she has also co-created Come Home – an Ancient Forest Lullaby with tree activists across Canada, as one of her many. As the Founder / Executive Director of Instruments of Change, she has been able to have her greatest reach and impact by designing experiences that empower underserved individuals to become instruments of change in their own lives as they find their creative voices.
