As part of the Feverish World Symposium, A Symposium and Convergence in Burlington, Vermont, October 20-22, 2018, artists Gabrielle Senza and jen berger come together to create an embodied experience of what prevents us from, and pushes us towards Walking Unafraid.
This installation is an immersive experience within an 8’x8’x8’ tent. An audio recording, exploring relevant questions* will play on a loop. In an era where media is as much a part of our days as eating and breathing, using an intimate platform, such as audio and handwritten texts, can give participants an opportunity to contemplate some questions that are on our minds.
Thinking about how we continue to move forward to create social change, what do you think about:
What roles should artists, activists, academicians, NGOs, corporations and governments play at this critical moment to lessen the divides that fracture our world today?
What does it take to ‘show up’ and be unafraid both internally, but also in the face of corporate intimidation and government persecution?

This interview will play in the tent and participants are encouraged to respond visually, using provided markers, on the gessoed walls on the inside of the tent. We hope you will learn from and connect with each other.
