A Zoom Salon Exploring Greensboro’s Creative Praxis during the 2020 Quarantine
Greensboro has long been known for its creatives – Musicians, Filmmakers, Poets, Sculptors, Organic Farmers, etc. Greensboro Project Space’s Done Different is a Zoom Salon led by local Greensboro creatives that explores not just how the events of the 2020 Quarantine affected their work, but how it has transformed the habits and strategies by which they do their work. The salon approaches this through the concept of praxis, the process by which a theory, lesson, or skill is enacted, embodied or realized. Praxis is often an activity oriented toward changing oneself and the world in which we live.
