Do You See What I See?

DO YOU SEE WHAT I SEE? (This workshop is FULL)

What we see in art often reflects who we are - our personal life experiences. Our guests view art through their own life lens. Where someone sees beauty, another may see trauma, oppression or exclusion. How do we model openness and a commitment to listening? How do we facilitate uncomfortable conversations? How do we see, and honor, what others see?

In this session, we will share time in four galleries. We will discuss art that may evoke thought provoking comments. Together we will navigate how to listen and respond in these moments and appreciate images through the lens of our guests.

Bus transportation is provided to and from the hotel.
