About Tender Places: Letters to Country - Kelly Lee Hickey
Tender (adjective): 1: marked by, responding to, or expressing the softer emotion 2: showing care 3: demanding careful and sensitive handling (Merriam-Webster Dictionary)
Place (noun): somewhere seen from the inside (Lucy Lippard, The Lure of the Local)
The land is changing, and so are we. In this time of ecological and social upheaval, how do we turn towards Country? Tender Places is an invitation to reflect on connection to place, in the past and into the future, through the gentle art of letter writing. During this generative workshop we will reflect on our relationship and obligations to places we love through a series of letter writing exercises.
This workshop is part of an ongoing research project exploring creative responses to climate change.
