An exposition of Grammatical Alters created in an introductory process of 10 virtual meetings with participants from Northern Ireland & Colombia
The Sowing of Life is inspired by a Agroarte Colombia project that began in Comuna 13, Medellin, which uses the arts, body, memory and the land to contribute to reconciliation, dialogue, healing, sharing experiences and stories, meeting new people while being creative and celebrating diversity. The project migrated to Barcelona with the Colombian diaspora and was scheduled to take place in Northern Ireland. The project principal funder is Mid-Ulster Council Good Relations. Due to CoVid-19 online workshops migrated online with the physical planting of the project postponed until 2021.
A total of 10 Online Workshops were led by Aka (Leader representing Agroarte) including participants from Colombia and Northern Ireland.
The whole process was very successful with all participants describing this process as a learning, enjoyable and enlightening experience, we reconnected with our bodies and our stories. “We have learnt, shared, and we have connected with one another despite being apart.” LIna Guzman
