Working It Out in the Theater!

We are in the theater bringing it all together for the performance - next Friday night! Seven days to go.
I cannot tell you how thrilling, wonderful, exciting, challenging, and alive this process is. Lately I have been reflecting into the deep generosity and strength of Jawole Willa Jo Zollar - her leadership and artistic vision! With her company, a group of truly inspirational and amazing individuals, she has built a process that is an organizing force for change in this world. A process that is rooted in art making practices and community building! All I can say is, "It works. This is real." This is people staying in the room together and working it out! Thank you Paloma McGregor and Amara Tabor-Smith, Urban Bush Women, for being such powerful, honest, and dedicated organizers/facilitators/leaders. Art making has the power to change lives, communities, and global paradigms. It begins with honoring community and one another.
