FOR CONNECTIVITY

Creativity cannot thrive in isolation. In order to thrive, creativity needs encouragement, careful critique, and especially the power of camaraderie. I’m passionate about bringing creative people together — outside of the public eye — to explore themselves and the larger issues at hand.

Gibbous designs custom workshops and affinity groups for artists in search of community.  With new modalities available through Zoom, these engagements are designed to share ideas and build knowledge by first developing a shared sense of connectivity. In small groups and over a period of engagements, artists co-create the bonds necessary to thrive in a life of art.
