"Why use creative concepts and art processes?
Introducing a different way of doing and seeing shakes up our rote behavior, new ideas are like seeds without infusing food and water they don’t grown, without weeding and pruning they don’t flourish we become tied to traditions that do not serve and to behaviors that are not inclusive or expansive."

A team or group is in essence a society with its own culture and traditions. The members that comprise this group bring with them the individual experiences, habits, and expectations. Developing an awareness of our creative self enables us to embrace diversity, ambiguity, and contradiction. I believe these all essential for a tolerant, democratic and living society.
