cultivating solidarity (a message for the arts ecology) (2020) (in collaboration with Mary Mcintyre)

Presented by The Walls Artspace, Gold Coast and supported by Outer Space, Brisbane. 

Part contemplation, part advocacy, these artist koans are the product of a group therapy session with a collection of Brisbane-based emerging artists and local buddhist somatic psychotherapist and Insight meditation teacher, Mary McIntyre. Together we dove into our doubtings and reckonings with our local arts ecology; its capacity to cultivate artistic health, our capacity to cultivate a healthy ecology, and its relationship to our own practices and wellbeing. They were facilitated and recorded online in our respective homes, together while apart, during the beginning of the Covid-19 social distancing period.
