AGO Youth Council 2010: Kat & Christen

September 6th, 2010

It is our pleasure to introduce the members of the AGO Youth Council 2010. Find out about Youth Council projects and activities and how to get involved.



I have many names, Kat, Katto, Ananda. I like ink, keys, and floating. On my spare time, I like to fly around the city, and look for places where I can melt. I like melting in my mind, my room, inside a box of tea, a book, a bottle of ink. I dream about vampires, zombies, flying, sailing, anacondas, jungles, and fluorescent lights hanging the sky and many other things. My goal in life is to be happy. The end.

Christen Kong

Christen Kong

Her name is Christen Kong. She is a girl. From a young age she enjoyed exploring the outdoors, making mud pies and picking flowers from her neighbour’s gardens. She has a heart for people who are in need and for people who simply need a friend. Currently, she is attending the Claude Watson Arts program. Keeping her busy with homework…blah and ART…yay! Whenever she can she goes on many explorations throughout town on her favourite bike with a wicker basket. One of her favourite inspirations at the moment is an expressionist artist, Kathe Kollwitz. She delights in working with children while on the journey in being a pro potter…Christen is full of stories and always is in search of new opportunities. What’s next on her list…?


Student Philosopher

I am a philosophy student by day and by night I am still a philosophy student trying to make sense out of art. My interests are primarily concerned with the nature of art in relation to time but have yet to conceive a concrete idea of it. They are all very abstract as of now but through this relation I’ve been considering the potential of recent technologies and making use of materials strictly in the context of our own time. Aside from that I am excited about the future and even more of the present while working with others to bounce off ideas to achieve something on a higher level. My curiosity and ambitions are fatal, I must change something.
