Introducing my latest collaborative project, Being Bodies which I have just started with the wonderful Sarah Lowe; friend, yoga teacher, poet, and editor of Most Things Move. Here is an outline of the project:
We don’t have bodies, we are bodies. Being connected to our bodies keeps us connected to others, to what we care about and to the world. Every part of the human experience is entwined with the physical parts of our bodies.
Being Bodies is a creative exploration of our physicality.
The project is a collaboration initiated by Sarah Lowe, a yoga teacher and poet based in Shanghai, and Richard Watkins, a poet/artist and initiator of creative collaborations based in London.
Each month of 2015 we will orientate our creative work around a particular part of the body, exploring the physical, sensual and metaphorical associations. Through the year we will work through: feet, legs, knees, pelvis, belly, chest, shoulders, arms, hands, back, head and face.
We have about 30 creatives from different disciplines signed up to contribute through the year. You can follow the project over at http://beingbodies.tumblr.com/
Do share #beingbodies with your network and get in touch if you want to talk about it.
Here’s to a year exploring the body.
