We are all touched by fear, in forms infinite in diversity and as varied and unique as we are individual. It can lie within us, deeply buried and silent.
Through the emotion of fear, we are all connected. This project brought together a group of individuals to look at fear, how it manifests itself and, in the face of our fears, how we behave. During the process, some of this silent fear was released.
With the support of professionals from a variety of creative disciplines, the group began to develop their own creative voices.
During the project, which ran between July and October, each member produced a wealth of diverse and creative work, documenting their own, unique experiences. As a result, each participant explored their own reactions and actions, gaining insight in to how fear can manifest itself, both physically and emotionally.
We would like to thank the individuals who took part in the project, for showing courage and a willingness to explore their own fears through creative expression. We would also like to thank the artists acknowledged below, whose sensitivity, enthusiasm and commitment to support and enhance the project is very much appreciated.
