International Commonalities

This was my first foray into meeting a variety of artists from around Asia on non-US soil. It was an interesting first day of attending different roundtables on a wide range of areas artists are working in. The world gets smaller and smaller as we find we all know common artists, shared interests, and commonalities on social issues, cultural perpetuation, activating, facilitating and community engagement. Through these exchanges, we have gained new awareness and insight into the impact of social structures in different cultures that are causative forces in the kinds of social issues that we all face. The power of one-on-one conversation is sharing knowledge.
