Amber Santos has been making art since she was a child and started exhibiting art as a youth.
She studied photography at Concordia University in Montréal, Canada and Fine Arts at Universidade Estadual de Santa Catarina in Brazil. As a Mentor at SelfDesign High, Amber brings her passion for collaborative art and self expression to her mentorship. During the seven years she lived in Recife, Brazil, she participated in the Network of Resistance and Solidarity, a self-organized network that used art to mobilize the community to find solutions to their issues and proclaim that, “The community knows what’s best for the community.†Back in the Kootenays where she grew up, Amber is an art activist with a focus on how art can sensitize about social and political issues. She advocates on behalf of more art in the public space - from her perspective, an essential piece for a healthy democracy and community. She helped with the NDYC mural project in 2010, coordinated the Colours of Nelson: a mural project in 2012, and recently helped with the instillation of a Before I Die project in Nelson, BC. http://bera.carbonmade.com/
