Overseas Collaboration ||| Throughout the years we’ve been blessed to have extremely creative people work with us abroad. Photographers, musicians, writers, and other creatives have helped us share the story of ELIC around the globe. This short time lapse was shot by @noahinlaos and the soundtrack was provided by one of our newest teachers, @danieltaemin. We love seeing our teachers collaborate and create while living overseas! ||| #elic #weareelic #elicengage #laos
