Meet the Festival team – Tina Marie

So happy to be involved with Resilient Blue Mountains and the fabulous Festival of Resilience. I am one of the many “crazy creative” types living in this beautiful mountains community.

My wish is to spread joy and foster positivity – to encourage everyone to take action in order to combat the challenges of climate change. By creating  connections we can strengthen community and become stronger and more resilient together.

PS: I also like dressing up, frollicking in nature, singing and generally just clowning around.

Favourite quote of the week – “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” – Mother Teresa
