MONTHLY DIALOGS WITH ARTS [16 NOVEMBER 2019]

Yohaku Art Collective organizes a new online meetup from the series Monthly Dialogs with Arts called Dream.

In our next Monthly Dialogs with Arts, we will focus on the theme of Dream. What do we dream about during the day and while sleeping? What can we learn from the arts through an exploration of our dreams? How can we connect to their symbolic meanings and create new ones for ourselves?

LONGING FOR CONNECTION

Have you ever felt like the more time you spend online, the more lonely and disconnected you become? Technology has changed our lifestyle massively in many ways. While we can connect easily with friends far away, somehow we lose the depth of being with each other here and now. Online interaction can feel shallow and unreal. Sometimes, it lacks meaning and leaves us with the uncomfortable feeling of emptiness.

We believe that online connection can be used efficiently and with awareness to establish meaningful relationships with people around the world.

Let’s reconnect with ourselves and others through a real experience of art-making!In this international online meetup, participants will connect through Skype and make art together with the support of two expressive arts facilitators. We will enjoy the flow of creativity and imagination using different art forms.

The ability to make art is what we all share and what brings us back to ourselves. Art can help us to express and communicate, to listen, to appreciate little things, and to be together!

THROUGH ARTS WE RECONNECT

replace technological isolation with a true connection

relax into art-making

practice how to let go of judgement

receive the gift of true attention from yourself and others

We will use basic art materials that everyone has at home to make art and have fun together! We will focus on easy tasks and look at the art pieces in the form of a dialogue.

We cannot wait to meet you again,
Sarah & Joanna
