Parallel Lines — Workshops
— with Amanta Scott
Designed and directed by Canadian Artist, Amanta Scott, these workshops bring together people of all ages, cultures and socio/economic backgrounds to share stories and explore diverse perspectives, choice, perception, memory and the subconscious — through conversation, storytelling, performance, interactive sculpture installation, and painting.
Cultivating empathy, compassion and teamwork, the workshops empower participants to listen to and connect with others; and to express and release their emotions through art and artistic interpretation. A powerful catalyst for developing intensely personal, thoughtful, revealing and insightful installations by Participants of all ages, the workshops create a forum for creative expression and release.
Conducted in communities, schools, offices, art galleries and museums — the workshops are guaranteed to generate lively discussion and laughter.
Newcomers, refugees, mothers, fathers, former inmates, troubled youth, survivors of Canadian residential schools, prostitutes, victims of incest, insomniacs, workaholics, soldiers, adults, children, seniors, travellers — literally anyone who has slept or attempted to sleep in a bed — everyone has their own unique story and perspective to share.
