Hearts Write Open: Transformative Leadership through Poetry and Creative Expression
This is a workshop for those interested in creating and presenting artistic work that transforms perceptions of self, community and the world. The arts have long been used to cultivate compassion and deeper understanding of ourselves and each other, and the workof artists and cultural leaders such as Augusto Boal, Anna Deavere Smith and Eve Ensler invite us to challenge the traditional separation between artist and audience. We will look briefly at how they have done this, experience an excerpt of artistic work that embodies these principles, and create a concept for a Performance Action Project that serves a specific community.
