Meet Our Volunteers:
Dani calls herself many things: an actor, artist, storyteller, writer, healer, facilitator of art and rhythm and sound. Silence Sounds offers a portal for art and artistic music experiences to our Community. As a volunteer Dani conveys that message and considers it a privilege.

Jordan been volunteering at Silence since November 2016. She helps with the monthly newsletters, creating posters for shows, as well as running the Open Stage nights and Pipe Down Presents Shows.

Dru is a young, aspiring artist from Aurora, Ontario. He picked up guitar for a short time at age 8 but decided bass was more his groove and promptly asked to take it up in music class. Dru stopped taking music in school but loved it so much that he kept learning whatever spoke to him throughout his teenage years.
From classical music to funk, from western bug band oldies to Bollywood bangers, from scary and heavy to calm and ambient – he loves it all! “World” music, perhaps.
Using mainly bass guitar – electric and acoustic – to compose, his love of the eclectic surely shows.
Megan is a PhD Candidate at Arizona State University in the Theatre and Performance of the Americas program, with an MA from University of Guelph and an HBA from Lakehead University. She currently lives in Guelph where she enjoys writing, singing, running, and playing with her dog when not working on her dissertation or grant proposals.
Various forms of art and the arts community have always been a large part of my life that is what drew me to want to volunteer at Silence Sounds. My education includes degrees in Fine Arts and Museum studies. I am currently doing school part-time in Therapeutic Recreation. I enjoy working with a mixture of mediums including, painting, printing, drawing and ceramics
