Colouring outside the lines: Paul Weston
Throughout high school I think that this seed was being planted. Ever since I was young; people were like, ‘you’re definitely not going into the trades because of the CP, so business school is what you are going to do. But [life] kind of snuck in there and helped me find my passion.”

Paul Weston is an artist – and I don’t mean a painter or sketch artist; he is a writer and director. A 2010 Tanabe Bursary award from the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC helped make film school graduation and career in film a reality for him, easing the financial burden of tuition and providing support to focus on school, gain more confidence, and tell the stories we want to hear.
