Turning Season Episode 19: Creative Changemaking in Art & Architecture (with Sinéad Cullen)
I know Sinéad Cullen is not alone in once feeling inadequate for not being a fists-in-the-air, protest-in-the-streets kind of activist; for not taking a stand in that dimension of The Great Turning we call “Holding Actions.”
I also know she’s not alone – and many of you listening will relate – in being deeply inspired by spontaneous creative expression, by powerful shifts in perspective, and by creative new design solutions. An architect, visual artist, and Movement Medicine teacher, Sinéad is deeply engaged in the other two dimensions of The Great Turning: “Seeing with New/Ancient Eyes,” and “Shifts in Consciousness.”
Click Play at turningseason.com/episode19 (or on Spotify, or Apple Podcasts, or wherever you like to listen to podcasts) to hear us talk about:
- shifting from a “linear economy” way of designing buildings toward structures (and art!) that are “designed for disassembly”
- plus why sometimes people don’t like that idea
- getting lost and coming home through creativity
- traveling the spiral of the Work that Reconnects through movement and visual art
- creative expression as the bridge between hopelessness and possibility
- solutions that emerge from slowing down, and valuing diverse perspectives
- and Sinéad dreaming up a new chapter in her life that brings her back to architecture, integrating Movement Medicine, the Work that Reconnects, and her time spent in ecovillages and indigenous communities
And after you listen, please leave a comment on the show notes. We’d love to hear from you.
