Radical Resilience: Cultivating Creativity in a Fractured World (aka OUT OF THE FRAME) (bring your own coffee & snacks)
Creativity resides at the edge of chaos. It’s right there at the edge, between the known and the unknown, where the greatest resilience happens, suspended betwixt the comfortable and uncomfortable. When life is seemingly falling apart, it’s also landing together. I say, let’s come out of the frame, together.
Why? Because, when we fail to see our connection to one another and the systems that sustain us as a whole, we fall out of possibility with one another. Everything is connected. The sustaining link is creativity.
Creativity helps us gently approach, bridge and reframe sensitive topics that are uncomfortable and important to explore. You’re invited to learn to create through and with change rather than against it by tending creative perspective. Let’s come out of the frame, together.
