It’s interesting that the Chinese word for transition is「過渡」and if we reverse it to「渡過」it means crossing over or passing through… Our upcoming online Monthly Dialogs with Arts workshop will be focused on the theme of transition. What are our ways of coping with a change from one state or condition to the other? How can we stay resilient while adapting to new circumstances? What resources can support us on the way?
In this expressive arts session, we will explore what transition means to each of us. Then, we will relax into the process of creation and reflect on what will manifest in our artworks.
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 May 23rd, 2020 at 1.30 pm (CET). 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
