Listen to these diverse voices. Follow @thecuriousscroll . Help us complete this remarkable documentary! See link in bio. So far hundreds of people have interacted with this 170 foot long Scroll. People have found their calm while making embodied art at the Republican and Democratic national conventions in 2016. And more recently the Curious Scroll has gotten thicker! We’re conversing about differences while painting, drawing and collaging on the scroll. Watch for the new short documentary in the beginning of 2019! .
Thanks to all who have contributed to this project so far and to @artscouncilsc for an initial grant. We are fundraising to complete the documentary. Follow the link in bio to make a tax deductible donation. @fractured.atlas  And gratitude to @californiatraffic for this editing!

It’s wonderful to enjoy what we have in common. But the most rewarding part of love is where you stretch to meet me and I stretch to meet you in the places where we disagree.

I want to see the beauty in admitting I’m wrong. I want to help others do this, so we can have better conversations. See theCuriousProject.org to learn about the next chapter of the Curious Scroll. This 170 foot scroll with the marks of people outside the 2016 Republican and Democratic conventions will get thicker. As we paint draw and collage, I will ask: What is beautiful to you? What is ugly to you? Have you ever found the beauty and something ugly? Have you ever insisted that you are right while disagreeing with someone you love and pushed them away? I have and I’ve regretted it.  Would it be OK if you share a strong political opinion and we disagree?  Now, before the upcoming November elections the Curious Scroll and short documentary in Santa Cruz will be a powerful template for the next chapter of the Curious Scroll in swing states before the 2020 elections.  Thanks to Isaiah Williams for the Scroll structure and to @artscouncilsc for the seed grant to kickstart this chapter in SantaCruz #socialpracticeart #sociallyengagedart #shortdocumentary #shortdocs #artintervention #theoppositeofhate #wereallinthistogether

Through the tears
Can you find the mark that expresses something from the thread of your inside guts?  Can the thread respond to the terror, the fear, the hopelessness, the despair and feel love for all of it?  And keep making more and more, finding a way to to live and give and make it right, even if it really feels and seems impossible? #videosketch #videojournal #sketchvideo #markmaking #threadstories
