Art connects us and creates space for new experiences and dialogue. This is the true value of a work, whether it is a piece of theatre, music, writing, sculpture, dance or a painting that somehow moves us.
"The Language of The Creator" - Janice Tanton's TEDx Talk. Artist, parent, and full time human being Janice Tanton takes us on a journey of creation from an artist's point of view, including how we can encourage others to find their own voice of creation in whatever form they choose, and how to be authentic and playful in the process.
Janice Tanton's 2011 TEDxCalgary Talk on The Language of The Creator. Focused on meaningful personal, family, community and organizational building through creative language of the arts, this heartfelt, personal artist's talk seeks to inspire you to consider human ways of being together.
How might it be for all of us if we were able to all just "be" ourselves in every situation? What might arise from this and for us? What might this intimate sharing of stories reveal about each of us, in our fragile human state. I learned so much over the weekend, not just from the rich content, brilliant ideas and brave folk who attended, spoke, volunteered, organized and tech-savvied the whole event, but from the act of openly sharing meaningful personal stories, despite nerves and all of the other distractions that accompany family life.
We are pleased to announce that Janice will be one of the speakers on June 4, 2011 for TEDxCalgary at the Glenbow Museum Theatre. The theme of TEDxCalgary 2011 is "Breaking Through: Exploring the frontiers of ideas and actions." "I hope to inspire, educate and entertain and am humbly honoured (not to mention a bit nervous!) to share what I have discovered with the TEDxCalgary participants." - Janice Tanton
Art and children have a way of showing us the love and sunshine in our life. Even when it's dark, being present to possibility, creativity and love instills hope and a pathway forward. My Mother's Day gift came early, and in a beautiful form. I want to share that with you.
