FROM I TO WE
was the exploration of the landscape of human connectedness and collective action of inhabitants of Manorhamilton and surroundings. Artist Susanne Bosch takes a strong interest in the resilience of local communities through collective action. The artist explored the question of recognizing interdependence and living together as an art of cohabitation out of conviction but also based on the insight of urgent necessity. ‘Meitheal‘ describes the old Irish tradition where people in rural communities gathered together to help each other. Reciprocity and acting as one team is generating a huge level of camaraderie and friendship.
FROM I TO WE used various formats to engage with site and public such as public conversations, collective songwriting going along with a video and fortelling the future of the place. It is based on co-creation and recognizing significant local talents and expertise as well as ideas and visions.
FROM I TO WE – collective songwriting
The participatory project FROM I TO WE is based on the observation of significant local talents and expertise in music and poetry and a strong community spirit in form of celebration. It invited local people to voice the future of this place through a collective process of songwriting which will lead to the development of a collective song, over the coming year. https://fromitowesong.wordpress.com
