Will you come on a tiny quest with me?
We'll explore connection, and how we make art with our communities through three questions. In the end, you'll find your artist engagement archetype
My name is Marie. I make playful art about the spaces between people: how we reach each other
What's your name?
We are all looking for connection. It’s the first hunger
I find connection very difficult. I’ve always felt other, strange. I want to feel close to people. But I'm always getting lost in the spaces between other people and myself
Art is the closest I’ve come to feeling that we might understand each
other. Like we might actually touch
Do you feel more connected to people through making art?
