A weekend of exploration and collaboration, Prince Albert, September 2018

Open call for participation

The Depth Leadership Trust invites you to participate in an exhibition weekend in Prince Albert from the 21st to the 24th of September 2018. The exhibition is an exploration of the theme of “Intimacy” in the way we relate to ourselves and the world. The aim is to immerse visitors in experiences of intimacy and the compassionate observation that it offers – antidotes to stress, trauma and loneliness.

“It is an absolute human certainty that no one can know their own beauty or perceive a sense of their own worth until it has been reflected back to them in the mirror of another loving, caring human being.” ― John Joseph Powell

Artists, musicians, performers, community workers, business people (and anyone else who may be interested) are invited to participate by contributing art, performances, workshops or any other experience that serves the aim. We invite Prince Albert residents to participate by exhibiting in their homes (or their streets), studios and places of work for this event, and we invite people from other places to submit work that will be displayed at 4 de Beer Street, or any other available and suitable place.

Sign up here if you’d like to get involved or stay informed.
