Verse in Dialog



Past Conversations’ Team

This crew of people were prepared to go out on faith to follow an idea of a pursuing a fresh way to create. Sometimes being a working artist, you can find yourself in a groove where your art can become stifled as you try to pay the bills. “Conversations”was an opportunity for them to meet like-minded creatives, to experiment with new ways of generating and exploring that elusive creative energy and then to share the process with an audience. It proves to be a fulfilling experience and we team up again for Conversations – To Intimacy and Beyond in September 09
