When I sent my proposal to the open call, “Social Dive”, I didn’t imagine how things would go. The expectation to come and work with local groups was great, the excitement swelled. Then, Global epidemic stopped us all. Consumerism is also an epidemic, but its symptoms are not visible. How do the two epidemics connect? Did the long stay at home this year also make you wonder – do we have too many things? Could we release some? give away? donate? And so maybe free up some space or room that could have been significant during the long stay at home in quarantine. It happened to alot of families here in Israel. And that’s what I’m talking about. I invite you to do the process with me, I mean it has been adapted to the new world – and will be half online and half real. Ensures a sense of release, spiced with humor while participating in my new work (Dafna Talmon).
