Join us Friday 26 May 2023 at 11:00am for our monthly artist lecture series, CreativeMornings/Victoria. We will be joined by guest speakers Isaiah Bell and Sean Guist to speak on this month's theme ACCEPTANCE.
Isaiah Bell and Sean Guist, co-creators of the open-hearted opera-cabaret-theatre solo show The Book of My Shames, talk about the transformative power of accepting our pasts, our selves, and the world around us. The collaborators discuss the merging of divergent artistic approaches as a metaphor for dynamic, creative acceptance, and dive into the sharing of vulnerability as a life practice. In a product-oriented society, “accepting” might suggest meekness, submission, defeat, failure. But does true acceptance mean giving up on positive change, or betraying ambition? Is letting go the same as giving up?
