ART TALKS BACK - a new experience of the gallery

Enter into a conversation with art and enhance your ability to see more deeply into yourself, others, and the world around you.

  • Would you like to deepen your ability for compassion and empathy, and to strengthen your connection to others?
  • Are you interested in enhancing your perception of the world around you and developing your understanding of both art and life?


Art Talks Back is a one-day workshop that invites you to enter into a conversation with art to enhance your ability to see more deeply into yourself, others, and the world around you. Facilitators Chris Jensen and Dirk van Wyk will guide you through an interactive experience that will lead from uncertainty and vulnerability to a practice of seeing beyond the obvious. You will gain insight and confidence in expressing your perceptions and making deeper connections.
