A CLEARING presents A POSSIBLE PRACTICE: Surrender My Softness

artists
Alana Dao & meg willing
 

A CLEARING: A Maine Arts Community is a collaborative practice co-facilitated by Alana Dao and meg willing. It is an intentional space to make art outside the crashing waves of dominant culture. Through their annual project—A POSSIBLE PRACTICE—artists of all disciplines are invited to complete work in conversation with a single poem throughout the year. This year, queer Palestinian-American poet Noor Hindi’s “Ode to Friendship” is the guide. Mail art exchanged between the facilitators, six primary collaborators, and community members is the medium. The project culminates with a print publication—a love letter to this cycle of radical shared practice.
