Jesse Jones
Do we need a reality?

Sunday 16 September 2012

United Reformed Church

The second of Jesse Jones’ events as part of Stages in the revolution took the form of a group encounter facilitated by a trained Rogerian therapist. The session took a group encounter from the 1960s as its point of departure and focused on the questions:

What is our perception of the “Real World?”

Is there a boundary between the drifting communities of art and our traditional notions of community, and how might this affect out being in the world together?

This session offered both participating artists and public a chance to reflect on these ideas through the frame of personal experience.
