Regina M Laroche
of DIASPORA ARTS and DIASPORA GARDENS
Founder and director of Diaspora Arts and Diaspora Gardens, Regina’s offerings rise from the intersection of art and the unifying stories of humanity and the earth. Regina’s story, dance, creative guidance and work are shaped by her life of small scale farming, family, and community along the edge of Lake Superior on Madeline Island. Her life and art are influenced by her mother's rural South Carolina upbringing, her father's Haitian Afro-Caribbean culture, and her own varied travel and cultural experiences. Regina is experienced in the creative dance and story work of InterPlay, is trained in spiritual direction and holds a theatre degree from St. Catherine University.
