Development of projects which could be used in the practice of participants will be encouraged.  Please bring laptops and any other resources which might be useful to the objectives of our workshop!

Susan Armington’s art and community work deal with connecting across difference, and the role of art-making and sharing stories in bringing deeper understanding of ourselves and of others.  She creates large-scale maps with community stories in them, and directs the Talking Suitcases™ project in which participants create and share their own story objects and Talking Suitcases about their lives.  Read More:

She organizes the object to create meaning and to provoke discussion on a wide variety of social topics. These include projects focused on gluten intolerance and water quality. Barbara is a 40 year teaching veteran. Read More:
