Hello Cool World proud to partner with Arts Health Network Canada and Arts Health BC! 

In July 2016, our own David Ng, 29, was awarded The Diversity and Inclusion Award from the City of Vancouver which celebrates outstanding leadership to foster inclusion across diverse communities. How does a young person acquire such recognition?

David Ng, started his journey at 14 as a volunteer youth advisor for Condomania – a youth sexual health program – developing their website and participating in and leading focus groups with Hello Cool World. This was David’s first experience learning about activism and anti-oppression.

Hello Cool World founder Katherine Dodds (aka Kat) is featured in the new book, Story Money Impact: Funding Media for Social Change by Tracey Friesen, a practical guide for media-makers, funders, and activists who share the common goal of creating an impact with their work. This year is HCW's 15th anniversary, which is the length of time we've been engaged with creating an impact through storytelling.
