Starting to connect / by Amanta Scott

Each of the participants resonated with the work in their own way.

Each of us found ourselves surprisingly moved and touched by what we saw and heard. 

Surprising juxtapositions sparked immediate visceral reactions, some very intimate revelations and profound interpretations.

As we got more into the workshop activity, stories and ideas began to flow.

Even knowing what we were going into, as the workshop director, I found myself triggered by the installations. I reacted by speaking straight from my heart and found an amazing resonance within each group.

Each workshop contained an amazing group of people.

Somehow by sharing our diverse perspectives we all came to understand each other and recognize aspects of ourselves as well — on a very meaningful level.
