All the self-criticism and comparison and self-judgement tapes play when I try to create in a group.
now and then ...
I participate in groups making art that builds communities.
This kind of activity transcends all sorts of barriers -
ability, age, race, intelligence, philosophy, spirituality,
ethnicity, poverty, education, neighbourhood.
And it creates community ... sometimes temporary, sometimes permanent.
And it develops a sense of pride and self-worth and belonging.
