About Carmen

Carmen Mills is a Vancouver-based writer, biker, event manager, urban monk, creative troublemaker, and Director of Free Will.

Carmen just returned from a 6-month stint of study at the San Francisco Zen Center, having previously spent a year in Path of Service residency at the Upaya Zen Center in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

A great proponent of reclaiming public space and of Fun for Free, Carmen cut her mischief-making teeth at sundry Tribal Harmonix all-night dance parties, Critical Masses, Dinosaurs Against Fossil Fuels hijinx, Wholesome Undie rides, and other powerful silliness. She has campaigned and organized for the Western Canada Wilderness Committee, Be The Change Earth Alliance, Home for the Games, and Secret Lantern Society.

Carmen does graphic design and event management through her company, Emerald City Communications. Her bigass projects have included Car Free Vancouver and the Car-Free Commercial Drive Festival, Momentum Magazine, and Stop The Pave (where she campaigned for over five years in opposition to the Provincial Gateway Project).

These past few years Carmen has been something of a tumbleweed, flowing back and forth between The Peoples Republic of East Vancouver and American Zen Centers and  Cortes Island, B.C, where she sometimes makes coffee at Hollyhock and helped launch the Dorje Ling Dharma Centre.

Carmen is dedicated to creative service, and open to all interesting projects and opportunities. If you have an idea for creative partnership please get in touch.
