World Views From A Traveling Photographer
A StoryShards Conversation
Visual Artist - LISL DENNIS - Story Guide
Much of the world steeped in depths of the unsustainable, one's inner sense and capacity for sustaining fearless creativity is an imperative – essential to maintaining sanity and a sense-of-soul. Business management consultant and futurist Edward T. DeBono projected:
"The twenty-first-century will be one of value creation and of creativity." While many sectors worldwide strive for increasing value in their products, especially technologies, the vessel of creativity must be continuously replenished and sustained by each individual in their daily lives. The question is: How do we remain resilient and sustain creativity with the fragmenting world around us in a constant state of shock-and-awe? Nourishing and sustaining inspiration and creativity
is akin to spiritual practice. While the current conversation around sustainability is largely focused on the world without – the environment, resources, politics, and such – what about our personal interior realms? It's an inside job to hold in heart and hand the shards of personal story, memory, motivation, imagination, and inspiration – all manifesting in unfolding expressions of Engaged Creativity in support of oneself – and in service to mankind.
The vessel for this relevant creative conversation is Lisl Dennis’ high-production multimedia presentation, including visual vignettes from her extensive travels worldwide. FEARLESS CREATIVITY - World Views From A Traveling Photographer establishes contexts and atmospheres for sharing stories. Each visual segment, with its evocative music and provocative quotes, evokes aspects of creative and spiritual experience, and honors core insights collected in the vessel of each participant’s life. Visual Artist and Story Guide Lisl Dennis shares her worldwide creative and spiritual journey as she invites participants’ StoryShards. The program is about fearless egagement in the world and about re-forming the vessel of one's sustainable creative life. It’s an inside job.
