Navigating Connections is a series of collaborative conversations with artists and facilitators, led by Camila Salcedo and denirée isabel, with a focus on identifying, naming, and exploring individual and collective responses to, and relationships with, emotions. The discussions will culminate in an online, visual encyclopedic resource of emotions. As described by Camila and denirée, “Through discussing our emotional intelligence together, we will create an ongoing network of community organizers, better equipping ourselves to support each other.”
denirée isabel is an artist, writer, and dreamer. Using her textile background to employ large scale installation, performance, and participatory/community art. Navigating the sticky terrains of emotionality and presence, she creates spaces (physically and symbolically) that prioritizes sharing and healing, while upholding an ethos of experimentation, curiosity, and care.
Camila Salcedo is an independent curator, community organizer and interdisciplinary artist working primarily in digital art, performance art and textiles. She is an inquisitive maker, constantly attempting to unlearn, question, and dismantle systems and institutions that were created to define us such as nations, identity, gender, politics, home, and migration.
