嘉琦: Artistic Expression Through Motion 是我最喜歡的課程，藝術家帶領小朋友去感覺自己的身體與環境的關係，自然而然的產生律動與舞蹈，那個時刻很令人感動。 Mad Scientist II Volcanic Eruption! 瘋狂科學家 最難忘小朋友拿著小恐龍們在編牠們與火山之間的故事那段，天馬行空，聽他們說著好可愛的故事。 金工一日體驗營 : 如果我是一個機器人 Metalsmith & MiniMe Robot 從紙張平面轉化成金屬成品，在切鋸過程中正需要長時間的專注力與耐心。雖然鋸絲一直斷，但小朋友對於切鋸金屬片時的認真神情實在是超迷人 !
嘉琦: 因為嚮光裡的人都很棒！ 很感謝嚮光讓我有機會參與小朋友們的成長，在引導他們課程的過程裡，有更多時候是被他們引領另一種想像、被他們的真誠療癒。
NEIGHBORHOOD INTERVIEW｜JIACHI SU

Daisy: How and when did you find out about Bright Side Projects and what made you want to get involved？
JiaChi Su: It started in 2012 when my co-worker first joined in Bright Side Projects and invited me to come along with her on their next event. Because I was curious about how an art course would incorporate an interactive aspect between kids and adults, I signed up.

Understanding them more and having spent time with them, they are more willing to open up to you.
D: What are your favorite classes that you’ve participated in with Bright Side Projects?
J: I loved the Artistic Expression Through Motion workshop, allowing kids to feel the environment and knowing their bodies through art creating a dance. This was very touching to see that moment.
Mad Scientist II Volcanic Eruption! was memorable as kids not only created their own volcanoes, but grabbed dinosaurs and created a story from it. Being able to listen to their stories was adorable. The 如果我是一個機器人 Metalsmith & MiniMe Robworkshop with kids creating their own mini me robots took place just last year and seeing the patience and dedication of the kids was mesmerizing!
D: What types of moments are the ones that make you want to take up the camera and snap?
J: My favorite shots are when kids are listening intently and the enthusiasm they have during the class. And I also love the interaction between the kids and Big Friends.
D: Why do you continue to join in Bright Side Project activities?
J: Because the people involved are wonderful! Thank you to Bright Side Projects for providing this opportunity to be alongside the kids as they grow! While we are navigating through the courses together, their imagination takes me on a journey that is an alternate source of true healing.
D: What are your hopes for the children or what you can do?
J: I hope that a seed is planted in the children’s hearts and minds, that the world has endless possibilities and choices outside of traditional routes and mainstream values.
We look forward to you also joining the Neighborhood and our community!
