“Theory Drives us, Practice defines us” as a phrase expresses how our actions – when strung together with intentional self-improvement – hold us accountable for the transition of our values into effecting change – Ashley Grenstone
Born and currently residing on the Unceded Traditional Territory of the Algonquin Anishinabe Nation ‘Ottawa’, Ashley Grenstone works as a Senior Administrator for the CBC/RC and is – among many things – an advocate, a designer and an artist.
Her experience as a trans, intersex woman has informed her educational aspirations, consisting of +3 years within a graphic/product design program at NSCAD University; a BA in Human Rights & Social Justice from Carleton University (June 2017); and, is now working towards an MA in Human Systems Intervention.
A small business owner of 10+ years Grenstone has been building a strong foundation of employment, contracts and commissions in preparation for expansion of her business and professional persona.
As a professional artist her work has shown at the Carleton University Art Gallery in ‘To Be Continued: Troubling The Queer Archive‘, Curated by Cara Tierney and Anna Shah Hoque; ‘Queer Landscapes Queer Intersections‘ in the John B Aird Gallery, TO; the online publication ‘These Pills Don’t Come In Our Colour’; to name a few.
