Ever since I met Ashley, she has exhibited an unmatched dedication to the community. I have seen Ashley and ADC inspire audiences at the Fringe Festival and ex-offenders at the St Patrick Center, simply by doing what they do - being passionate, being artists, and being present. ADC's shows have consistently been among the most popular, and most buzzed about, at our Festival.Em Piro
