Yannis is an Award-Winning Cuban artist based in Toronto. As a community artist, I am passionate to share my knowledge, language and art with the community. In 2016 I created my Bilingual (Spanish-English) creative writing and Storytelling workshops. I have carried out more than 100 activities in different places in Toronto. I seek to create initiatives that promote multiculturalism and literacy throughout Canada. In my projects, I celebrate my culture, my ancestors and my heritage. That is something I do for the great honour of transmitting my cultural heritage to my daughter and the audience who cares to learn about us. In my short stories, fiction and Nonfiction, I explore themes like my bicultural identity, motherhood, Language, memory, immigration, land and new home. As an ESL author, mother, and newcomer artist in Toronto. I believe in maintaining our mother Language to transmit family history and values.
