« There was engagement with the arts, we didn't just sit in a room and speak about beauty, we got to see Paris and were able to get an inside perspective on it. Hearing from different people using arts to engage with culture was really eye opening for me ».
« I wanted to come for this conference to see what an artist community is like. I’ve felt it all but now I sense there is more I’m meant to take and to give. I didn’t think that after only a week I would be so moved by this place and these people ».
« We view art from multiple disciplines : music, photography, visual, the city itself, etc… We heard from a variety of people from different perspectives and backgrounds. I feel like I was constantly being put in front go something different to draw inspiration from or be challenged by ».
