MONTHLY DIALOGS WITH ARTS [21 DECEMBER 2019]

Monthly Dialogs with Arts is a series of online gatherings for expressive arts enthusiasts.

In our next Monthly Dialogs with Arts, we will focus on the theme of a safe space. How does your safe space look like? What else could you do for yourself to feel safer and at more ease? How the feeling of safety can be brought into a whole range of situations that you deal with on a daily basis? Professional meetings and discussions, international collaborations, family gatherings, hidden and open conflicts, or any moments of crisis can influence our comfort and safety. Can we maintain it despite all the difficulties? Can we cultivate the feeling of safety internally even though the outside world seems to be in chaos? Join us to explore your safe space through the arts!

As we get participants from all over the world, we will experiment more with various time options. Our next online expressive arts meetup will take place on December 21st at 2 pm (GMT+1). We invite you to connect with us and experience the true power of art-making!

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
