Vancouver, British Columbia
Bailey joined the Youth Unlimited family in the summer of 2020 and works at the Creative Life program in East Vancouver. There the team serves youth by creating spaces of transformation through the arts. Bailey’s role involves programming the weekly studio workshops and helps set a direction for the curriculum to give the best experience to vulnerable youth.
“I have experienced how transformative art can be in my own life.”
Bailey believes that creative spaces encourage us to be ourselves and welcome us as we are. Simply being creative together helps us find belonging. It allows us to connect with the world and with each other in a tangible and embodied way, which can bring a lot of healing into loneliness and isolation.
With Masters in Divinity at Regent College and studies of Community Art at Wheaton College, Bailey has been able to use her passion for art. She brings personal experience in Community Art and collaborative projects as she has facilitated art projects with families and people of all ages and backgrounds in her ministry. She has also created resources for the St. John’s Anglican Vancouver Church children’s ministry program as an artist and illustrator.
Bailey’s greatest and most substantial adventure has been spending a year in a van road tripping across USA with her family. She brings her sense of curiosity and creativity wherever she goes.
