This special 7-week workshop series will be facilitated by performance artist Dohee Lee. Dohee’s work, based on East Asian philosophy and traditional Korean arts combined with new art forms and rituals, is deeply influenced by her Korean cultural heritage. In this performance research project series, Dohee shares the wisdom she has gained through her professional artistic and healing practice. Dohee will guide you to discover how your art practice can be responded to and attuned with personal, social, emotional, mental, environmental, historical and spiritual matters and structures. Connect/Reflect/Enact will engage your practice in the arts with themes such as: your relationship to social rights, your purpose in life, honoring your ancestry, and your connection with the natural world.
