Hackney resident Chairman Kato is known as an artist and musician, but for many years he also had a double life working as a doctor in Accident and Emergency. It was an arrangement that worked well for much of that time but Kato became increasingly conflicted about his future and felt trapped in between two worlds. He knew he wanted to become a full time artist but couldn't see how he could make it happen.

Then one day, at the start of 2014, Kato woke up one morning and abruptly ended his medical career, shocking his colleagues by announcing that he was now working as an artist. He had unwittingly made the biggest decision of his life.

Since then he has steadfastly dedicated himself to spreading the message about creativity. He passionately believes that not only are we all artists, but that it is our universal birthright to express ourselves. Since becoming a full time artist Kato has coached many people through their creative blocks, helping them tap their artistic potential. He also runs a weekly support group called The 100% Club, providing a confidential and encouraging environment for anyone looking to recover their creativity.

At his Sunday Assembly address, Kato will be talking about creativity, and what the joy of self expression teaches us about personal freedom and authentic living.

As well as this inspiring talk, we will hear real life stories from the community, sing some awesome songs, drink a vat of tea/cofee and eat a heck of a lot of biscuits afterwards too.

BSL interpretation will be provided.

We can't wait to see you there and have fun celebrating life with you all!

Sunday Assembly London is free to attend and runs entirely on donations. Please support us if you can to keep it free for those who can't.
