Katti and Ee'da facilitate 'Embodied Voice' workshop at Seven Sisters Festival
'A Good Life' is the the National Youth Week award winning song written by the 'WEL's angels' - a group of young people from diverse multicultural migrant and refugee backgrounds participating in the 'Embodied Voice' program, a transformational community arts project in Melbourne's Western suburbs led by Melbourne performing artists Katt 'Kattimoni' Beames and Eeda Brahim. 'A Good Life' produced by Wayne 'Lotek' Bennett, is a collective response to the question; How can we live a good life? In what ways can we work together to create a good future?

Katti presents with commitment and grace, radiating a positive flow of energy to her audience. She is able to engage in a gentle and influential way with young people at risk of social marginalisation. She is flexible and adaptable to cultural and faith diversity.
The Embodied Voice workshops allowed the students to express themselves through voice both individually and collectively spreading messages of peace and social connectedness.
I highly recommend Katti for future workshops with promote social cohesion, peacebuilding and healthy relationships with self and others.

"It was fun, it pushed me, it helped me to feel connected to myself and to believe in myself more. The positive energy always left me feeling lifted when i would leave"
"I loved the safe space to be vulnerable. I have more self-love and self-confidence to express myself. Embodied Voice empowered me to create by letting myself be really present and inspired and share things i create with others."
‘I looked forward to every week not knowing what to expect next. We were gently facilitated in to a sacred journey of self discovery through music, creative writing and dance. I discovered a side of myself I never knew existed.. I was challenged from which I found new strength…’
'EV was an intimate and gentle journey to share and unlock my creative potential . . .'
'I found a different confidence and love of myself. I will do this course again. On one hand it challenged me to give myself permission to express my own voice with clarity and confidence yet at the same time it was oh so nurturing.'
