A Word about Words: Language, Meaning, & Intent
The language we use is powerful. Our communication sets the stage for how authentic our engagement is with others. How can we create an equal exchange and break down the barriers? How do we challenge the assumptions and fear around how we talk about each other?
What are your creative hang-ups? We all have them, whether it's the fear of failure or being a sell-out, to the overarching feeling of "not being artist enough." Whatever your hang up might be we'd love for you to share it, and then listen with open minds to the testimonials of fellow artists and writers.
