Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This pandemic is no different. It can be a portal. It can be a gateway between worlds. We have this unique opportunity to think about how we might re imagine ourselves once we walk through this gateway to a new way of being in the world. Will we drag the dead weight of prejudices, racism, classism, homophobia, ageism, our polluted skies and oceans and all the other avarice that weighs our humanity and our world down or will we walk through the gateway lighter, with minimal baggage, ready to imagine another world and ready to fight for it?

It is in the synergy of community building that extends our light and our grace beyond what any of us possess alone. I invite participants (individuals and families) to join me in a creativity salon that explores Our Human Museums.

Participants should be available to engage in an interactive 90 minutes or 120 minutes live session with NC Poet Laureate, Jaki Shelton Green. Bring your objects, stories, whatever you want to share as we dive into this landscape of What We Keep Keeps Us. What are you holding on to that is blocking or enhancing your creativity? How do we work with archival material?

As we return to the quietude or noise of our lives after the session, these are the questions that will serve as the cornerstone of the session:

What invitations are you accepting from the universe during this quarantine?

What are the gifts tucked deep inside yourself and your relationships that you might reclaim differently?

How are you empowering and expanding your creativity?

What new permissions have you granted yourself for new discoveries, new self-affirmations, and celebration?

I believe that creativity is medicine. What is the medicine that you and your family are harvesting and sending out into the world right now?
