SPIRIT OF CREATIVITY
FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS
UNLEASHING creative energy is said to be good for the body, mind and spirit.
Organisers of a one-day festival of art, dance, poetry, yoga and meditation will provide the opportunity for visitors to do just that this Saturday.
Spectrum will take place at B-Shed following Meeting for Minds Synergies Forum, an international event for neuroscience experts, on Friday.
Event creator Osnat Harlap said Spectrum was designed to help people explore new ways of improving their well-being through the arts.
“Magic happens and solutions evolve when people that think differently come together,” she said.
“I truly believe that Spectrum can provide a platform for talking, listening, engaging, reflecting and ultimately enabling people to experience feelings and thoughts beyond their usual boundaries.”
The event will include artist Eveline Kotai, poet Roland Leach, yogi Lara Dwyer, films from Disability in the Arts, Disadvantage in the Arts WA and workshops from Idan Porges, a representative of the Gaga dance movement language.
Kotai, who has joined with Harlap for an installation, said she was enjoying the “unexpected sense of play” that came with the collaboration.
“As a team we provide each other with little sparks that take us on imaginative detours, but also carry us to the next resolution,” she said.
“The added bonus will be experiencing the work outside the conventional gallery setting and I’m hoping this new dimension will offer a different level of engagement.”
