Internal Alchemy & External Play Birth the Curiously Engaged Life
How Self-Creation and Inquiry Come together in Shanta Lee’s World of Images, Words and Life Practice
What is the internal alchemy needed to engage in a curious life? How can the concept of engaging with the unknown, unseen and intangible co-mingle with ideas of self creation through the mediums of writing, photography and film? Artist, public intellectual and being what she calls a “practitioner of entanglement,” Shanta Lee weaves together these questions and shares how curiosity has unzipped across dimensions of her creation.
This lecture is an experiential journey across images, words and Shanta Lee’s life practice leaving the audience with a question for themselves:
What will be your version of internal alchemy and play that unzips into your version of a curiously engaged life?
