Workshop description:  
Sally Atkins and Vered Zur   
Earth and Air: Arts and Ritual

With one foot rooted in the Earth, we find the courage to step one foot in the air and explore the unknown in art and in life. Within the frame of a ritual space of earth, air, fire and water, we will create and explore an ongoing earth installation and shape poetry of “nevertheless,” poetry of survival and comfort.
