getting creative in the name of self discovery
How Are You Doing?
Can't talk it out? Can you draw it? Squiggle it? Dig holes into the couch? Burn something (safely!). Blow a dandelion and watch it scatter?
anything and everything matters
If it comes from you, it is IMPORTANT
We are in this together
The Very Human Beings
Come Along: What is this and how to join in?
Sometimes words just don't express, do they? Or sometimes they do but not as conversation or talk. We often get very lost trying to articulate in everyday sentences. So we turn to art, music, film, sound, metaphor, creative dialogue, prose, you name it. Whatever will help us take "it" from "that" to "this".
You know what is the most amazing thing about humans? Every single one of us is a creative being. Every single one of us has the ability to express ourselves creatively. If you haven't already tried, give it a go and experience the freedom it brings. It's breathtaking, we promise!
What's that? You are not an artist? You can't? Who told you that? For me it was my grade 1 classroom teacher and my grade 5 music teacher. Who was it for you?
Here – throw egg in their face!
Come on, we have even garnished it for you!
CAN'T. CAN'T. CAN'T. CAN'T. CAN'T. CAN
Grab whatever you have at your fingertips and dig deep into your pockets of all you can and let's help each other say what some days we just can't.
As always, feel free to riff off ours if you are stuck. In fact, we would LOVE that.
If you're feeling brave, post your versions in our comment feed so others can be inspired too. Or upload to your own social media (be sure to use our hashtags - #veryhumanthings - so we can find each other). Either way, make sure to comment on posts by others and encourage one another as we find new voices.
The only rules are: RESPECT!
See you in there!
