About Vicky Yeung! Edmonton Alta.

About Dave Trinh! Toronto Ont.
A region of Waterloo resident for over 40 years and a social entrepreneur, Dave has been facilitating positive social change within communities. His ethnographic methodologies and entrepreneurial spirit provide the spark to enact these changes. He works on modeling practical sustainable communities within the arts scene that cultivate synergies between commerce and the human environment. The result is swing dancing and jazz music that thrive symbiotically with good business practices. Technology is an important vehicle in achieving these outcomes as well, as Dave combines his digital media design talents with his knowledge of computer programming and sociology. He teaches robotics and video game coding to children and adults at the Kitchener Public Library, teaches swing dancing at the City of Waterloo's Leisure program, and performed traditional jazz music on stage at the Uptown Waterloo Jazz festival this summer. Dave was nominated by Arts Award Waterloo Region in 2016 for artistic excellence, sustained development and impact on the Waterloo Region community for the creation of a sustainable swing dance business, the Hep Cat Hoppers. His current project includes helping raise awareness to social swing dance communities around the importance of Strategic management, the ongoing planning, monitoring, analysis and assessment of all that is necessary for any Canadian organization to meet its goals and objectives, in order to become a self sustaining entity. He spends time with organizers to develop a working model for their communities, with hopes a strategic planning statement can be put into action by their engaged members and participants.
