Experiences of the Workshop

The themes in this section illustrate both the artist’s journey through the workshop and its impacts on them. This started with the development of trust and community that was central in the success of the workshop. Next, the workshop practices offered artists the opportunity to relax and develop heightened somatic and self-awareness, which resulted in significant realizations and change. Lastly, artist’s development of a personal symbol language described in their finished art works helped embed the changes they experienced.
