Jenny is an artist and original Tasai member who has lived and worked in the DTES for over a decade. Jenny’s consistent, persistent, embracing presence in the neighbourhood meant she was the perfect person to bridge two very different worlds. On the one hand, the DTES, and on the other Railtown, an adjacent neighbourhood of tech start ups and maker labs where Dossier is located.
Natsuki is a calligraphy master and Tasai member. She has won too many calligraphy competitions in Japan and Canada to mention, has worked on projects with Microsoft, Shiseido, Dentsu, Toyota and Netflix, and has provided hundreds of calligraphy workshops and demonstrations. On her first visit to a Tasai event she told Steve she wanted to create world peace through calligraphy. When Steve said, “Yes!” they both knew she was in the right place.
