Humanitou hosted a pop-up event during Arts Month as part of ArtPOP, a local-arts series supported by the Pikes Peak Arts Council and the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region. Participants shared stories and were photographed during 30-minute sessions. The conversation below is one of seven in the Humanitou ArtPOP series.
Andrew Ziegler was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 10 years old. It gave him a remarkable sense of clarity, even at such an early age.
When Andrew sat with Humanitou, he shared about his experience to enlighten many of us who simply don’t understand what diabetes is and how living with it works.
He also talked about advocacy for those without privilege to gain access to … well, life. And he gave a glimpse into his poetry and its power to convey a critical message.
Meet Andrew Ziegler.
