Artist in Residence
Meliors Simms, Writer in Residence
I’m both a writer and an artist, interested in exploring innovative and sustainable ways to present creative ideas through written and visual languages. My work is mainly about ecological sustainability and its relationship to personal actions and beliefs. I'm using the wonderful luxury of the time and space provided by the Sunrise Rotary/HGHS residency to develop a suite of new poems and related artworks about extreme environments and extinction.
It's thrilling to be part of the fearless exploration that young people apply to this kind of creative expression. My own projects are being shaped and inspired by our interactions and their fresh interpretations of many conventions.
