You will have noticed that I have been sharing a few testimonials of what it was like for East Gippslanders to attend the workshops I led last August during my residency in Swifts Creek.
When receiving the videos, I was holding my breath each time I was listening to people kind and meaningful words. Each single person has been so inspiring to watch.
It might not seem much, but this is what art has the power to do: touching your life at a place you don't expect it. For some it was about spending time with others, for others it was the magic of playing with ink. In any case, each person's experience has been deep and significant.
That is what drives me to do more workshops and to bring art in areas of Australia where this is not common practice. Let's make this one life experience worth it, let's make it inclusive, open to others and inspirational!
