For You, For Fun Workshop at YBCA.
January 18, 2017
We were so lucky to have J Carter participate in our workshop—here’s what J said about it:
Our culture often links performance with anxiety about how we'll be perceived: will this person think I'm funny enough, sexy enough, smart enough? For You, For Fun offered a cure for performance anxiety by making it easy to share a part of ourselves with a stranger and receive them in return. It asked us to feel how the experience of performance changes when we begin with offering our attention to others. Cutting through all the garbage about judgment and status, this workshop released the power and pleasure of generosity.
