After 8 months in a relatively non-creative environment I've realized that art justice is my biggest concern right now as a means to equity. From my experience at my placement I've learned that in the practice or acknowledgement of a person's creativity, it’s healthy to explore the unique ways that a person processes information from each experience. Every experience holds a lesson; and expression of self can ultimately help to peacefully navigate through challenges. At my placement, the challenge for me was that the culture demanded for more analytical skills than the creative or kinesthetic style that is my natural process. It was hard to navigate or exist because I felt there was a constant overwhelming pressure to change the way that I naturally learned. I’ve encountered similar situations in school and the way that there's no accommodation on the part of the school's systems to teach for different learning styles. At the beginning of my placement, it seemed that I was never fast enough or obedient enough for the culture of the organization; and I’m still not. But that's the beautiful thing about the experience I was privileged to go through! It taught me to understand what I’m not and to mobilize and apply the unique way that I understand the world around me. It taught me how to value my creativity and see other’s creativity, and how I can mobilize others to embrace and apply their natural understanding. It taught me to create the change that I want to see. My vision is to be able to provide open space for a transgenerational demographic where participants can articulate their understanding of their current or past experiences through creativity and art. Working with seniors and older adults in professional settings, as well as working with youth throughout this year, it was interesting to see how creative project or anything artistic helped conversations get genuine and real. From sharing personal experiences, remedies, or music to talking about current challenges with housing or family or community – often in each group the same issues were brought up, and how there is a lack of presence or support for either youth to elders. I think that each group feels a lack of support from the other is simply because they are never in the same spaces as equals. I’d like to provide that space of healing, exchange, growth and empathy.
