With her new work, The Anonymous Project, Emily Carr alumna, Krista Bailie ('10) is hoping to answer the question "Could we create more meaningful connections if we were stripped of the ability to hide behind the identities we’ve constructed for ourselves?"

The project has already been well received globally, with participants from Peru, Japan, Europe, the UK, Australia and all over North America.
