  2. 2. The Unconference has helped me become more conscious of our profound need for beauty. I have seen it in the Artlivingmakers, in the organisers of the workshop, in those who have supported us, in those who attended.... I have faith in the fact that this desire for beauty will be satisfied in many different ways and I feel that this Unconference helps me ADELA INNERÁRITY PRESIDENT of LUR GOZOA that this Unconference helps me prepare myself to recognise it and express it.
  3. 3. I feel deeply happy and grateful to life for having allowed me to take part in and share the experience of the Unconference. ROSANA AGUDO ALONSO Dreamer – Vision Coach To be able to express what my heart and my thought needed to say and to share this in an atmosphere of respect and enjoyment has been a moving experience full of deeply-felt hope.
  4. 4. Art as an attitude to life. It was a fascinating idea. JON SARASUA Bertsolari Composer of spontaneous oral poetry As well as that, the morning began with a good omen: on the way into Bilbao The II Unconference was a fresh opportunity to sense the flow of reality and learn a little more. An industrial building reconverted into a cultural venue, and a large group of people disposed to listen, learn and, in any case, draw the outline of some idea. a good omen: on the way into Bilbao daybreak had an unusual orange colour and, as I drove in through Txorierri, my car passed under a 180 degree rainbow.
  5. 5. You read the press, listen to the radio, watch TV, and often have doubts: maybe we don’t have the strength to revolutionize ourselves and revolutionize society, maybe we live in a passive universe, resigned to its decadence. However, this feeling of being alone disappeared for me when I took part in the II Unconference, held in Bilbao, «Living in the Era of Art». During a one-day workshop, that felt too short for many of us, I had an opportunity to move beyond the historical pessimisms and discover that active participants exist, that they move, that they intervene directly in the world; first of all to denounce its failings (superficiality, stupidity, injustice) and, then, to change it through a common project that is ambitious, Happier, too, because the Unconference highlighted a key question that is forgotten so many times in the big speeches of our time: that in the same way as the world belongs to us, we belong to it; and so, every journey towards knowledge and self-improvement is both personal and universal. I find it difficult to imagine that any person could be unaffected after living through an experience like the Unconference. What was proposed there, apart from the concrete experiences and personal work, was a vision: of what we can be, of what we can do, of how we can live and intervene. The echo of those reflections, all of them inspired by art as a tool for construction, leaves the kind of sediment that is impossible to ignore. change it through a common project that is ambitious, more democratic and more just.
  6. 6. CRISTINA LINDEGAARD “La Canela” For me there has been ‘a before’ and ‘an after’. My proposal to share with those attending a little piece of “Flamenco for the Soul” has purely and simply convinced me fully and reaffirmed me in my feeling that I am on the right road with my project, that it is useful, that it can make people feel better about A day full of inspiration, full of creative energy, innovative, of dreams to be turned into reality and dreams that are already coming true, of hopes, of shared experiences, of laughter and the feeling that from the heart and with the wings of the butterfly we can do, create and live everything. useful, that it can make people feel better about themselves, that it is a great tool for making people happier and that dancing through consciousness can transform people.
  7. 7. CONSTANCE LITTLE President of Mirra In the silence we can feel it, and also when The Age of Art is here. It is subtle, and its energy is within each and every one of us. In the silence we can feel it, and also when we meet with people who are in contact with it...whenever we have an open heart... we can get in touch with our need for harmony and beauty and make them appear in our lives and in the world through our own creativity... - A pearl of wisdom I rescued from the II Unconference of Dreams in Action
  8. 8. The old “recipe” of music, dance, poetry or, in short, culture being able to bring together people with different curricula, has worked once again thanks to the warm, gratifying FELIX B. BOPP Creator of the Club of Amsterdam Rooted in old traditions such as flamenco, spontaneous oral poetry in Basque (bertsolarismo) —to name just a couple of the contributions and interventions— and combined with a sense of belonging to some unifying force, with the same values, it seemed I was drinking from a source of energy that will allow us to cooperate, will make us able to adapt ourselves to the changes that come and to have a positive influence over our future —not only at local level, but also with a great global impact. Thanks to everyone for the splendid time we’ve spent together. once again thanks to the warm, gratifying atmosphere during the event in Bilbao.
  9. 9. INMACULADA MARTÍNEZ Tantra Instructor Life Coach To describe in one sentence what I experienced during, and what I carry with me from, the II Unconference Dreams in Action, I would say: To live in the Era of Art we must develop a deeper vision of human beings, their relations, their life experiences, their decisions, their way of seeing and interpreting the world.
  10. 10. MIKEL ALVIRA Novelist - Poet Without doubt, for me the Unconference that took place in Pavilion 6 has been one of those opportunities to grow, to check where we find ourselves and feel part of a network. A personal opportunity to grow, while learning from enterprising people. At the same time to deepen my awareness of reality, to check where I The fact is that, apart from the aesthetic enjoyment of the space and the organisation, as well as the warmth generated and the explosion of emotions managed throughout the day, afterwards there have been contacts, nods, encounters, meetings that have meant the spirit of the Unconference has helped to tighten things up in my tasks and, above all, my being. Finally, the opportunity to remove the fear of being alone and realise that there are many of us who are journeying with a desire to evolve, weaving a network of synergies. deepen my awareness of reality, to check where I am, to reflect on the positions I adopt. I would even say, not only learning about intangible matters, so necessary for emotional construction and reflection, but also practical matters that are effective and efficient when it comes to developing entrepreneurship.
  11. 11. IÑIGO LÓPEZ AGUDO Musician Probably the most enriching outcome I take from the II Unconference is knowing that the art one brings out of oneself, despite what the artist might say, generally appears as something extraordinary to the eyes of others. This revitalises both the artist and the art itself and it gives it a new dimension: that work of art now belongs to all those who can perceive its beauty.
  12. 12. The Unconference showed me there are people creating another reality. That good intentions, innovative ideas, creative projects are becoming realities. It reminded me that we have the power to act and change our surroundings. It reminded me that it is possible to do this and it is being done. Awareness in action, that’s what it was for me. Thanks for BELÉN MAYA Flamenco Dancer that’s what it was for me. Thanks for inviting me and letting me be a part of it.
  13. 13. What is ART for me and how do I express it in my life Art begins when living is not enough to express life. Art is what is inside a look, the sound of the soul, dancing with life, listening to it..., it is the touch of the air, the smell of life. Art is beauty, beauty is in every sensation whether positive or negative, the beauty of black and white and the whole infinite rainbow between light and darkness. Art is keeping company. Having expressed ourselves. Emotions talking and dancing. Becoming more aware. Being alive. Power to transform. Art is connecting with an essence that interests you and interpreting it (the interpretation the how…process. Art is process). The art of looking after life. Life is art if you open yourself to inspiration. Art is bringing out a sun we carry within us that we didn’t know we had. Art is play and poetry. Art is when you express yourself as you really are, without limits, being free. We are not alone.
  14. 14. We have discovered we are many thanks to these encounters. Art is making each instant a special instant. Not only the person who creates it, but also the one who looks at it. A way of looking. Everything that thrills me. Passion and feeling. Care and love in the everyday. Connection between, and union of, individuals. Art is to unite, to transmit, to thrill, to change, to move. Art is action and we are all actors and actresses. Art is creativity, imagination, self-expression, vision, form, freedom, colour, sound, light, vision. Sharing a vision. What your action leaves in its wake. Everything you touch with consciousness, energy entering and leaving, the spirit manifesting itself,Everything you touch with consciousness, energy entering and leaving, the spirit manifesting itself, human beings getting together, love-the heart, sharing singularities. Living your life as an artist, believing in your own creative potential, connecting with other people to make your vision and the purpose of your life manifest. To share my Art is to share my life. Being in love with my life. Expressing the joy of being human. Connecting with a source of imagination. To motivate other people to find this spirit and serve it... Aspiring for truth, peace and harmony. Inspiring to heal, to live, to love, to celebrate, to be present in the here and now. Presence, serenity in movement, movement in serenity.
  15. 15. Create a headline or phrase to express what has happened here What do I take away with me I take away: tons of confidence. Art as a way of communicating with each other, of uniting us and of relating to each other; the energy of a day full of happiness, generosity and art. I take away a lot of gratitude. The relationship with the others is the motor supplying energy. I feel alive, happy, content; I feel my soul being inundated with happiness. How much art, what a pleasure to be part of this group of artists who move my energy with their generosity, nourish it and drive it forward... THANK YOU!nourish it and drive it forward... THANK YOU! The global connection, conscious action leads to visions becoming real. We take away the feeling of being alive and having shared and because of this have the power of transformation. My life is art paradoxically; full of inherent and enriching uncertainties. The marvellous uncertainty of creating that is nothing other than living. Life is art; art is life, art is authentic creation, art is recreation.
  16. 16. Create a headline or phrase to express what has happened here What do I take away with me I arrived thinking: “I have a dream” and I leave saying “we have a dream” and convinced that I am going to fulfil it. We take away: Vibration, Creativity, Channelling, Openness, Connectivity, Energy, Collective Perception, Inspiration, Sharing. Don’t be afraid to change.Don’t be afraid to change. Live your life like an artist. A culture that connects local roots and embraces global compassion. The Era of Art: self-leadership, intuition, open to inspiration Summary: Culture that connects to individual needs, local roots and embraces global compassion
  17. 17. DRIVING-FORCE I D E A S Continuing on the road to conscious evolution makes us more sensitive to beauty. To awaken the eye of beauty is a lesson yet to be “I had always dedicated myself to dancing, but I had things to say. To launch my message through my flamenco, break with stereotypes, express the soul of my dance and create. It’s difficult, but possible.” Teaching gives you the opportunity to live the learning process of others, to live what your students live is the most marvellous lesson for the teacher. The body is made to move and is the base, where feelings are perceived. Even spirituality depends on the body. Humanity aspires to beauty, to balance and each one of us feels it and expresses it in different ways. lesson yet to be learned. marvellous lesson for the teacher. Power belongs to beauty. The artist must serve that which makes him create, as the vehicle enabling the divine to express itself magically in matter. This can be applied to life. YES IT CAN. Art is made to be shared. From one to all, there is a feedback loop. Create and share.
  18. 18. DRIVING-FORCE I D E A S We are the planet where life, not only our own, is taking place. Art is fundamental to contribute to a more habitable, decent world 2,500 years ago the Greeks invented theatre with two people: faced with the same conflict each character defended certain arguments. The audience were not given answers, rather they went away full of questions, freer, more imaginative and critical. Now we are spectators at a monologue. Theatre is a perfect tool for educating. Creativity cannot be imposed. To create is to work. The creative process is very laborious. The process of doing what we want to do is very arduous, but it also strengthens us a lot.
  19. 19. DRIVING-FORCE I D E A S The process of transformation is complex, organic and unforced. The process of self-transformation that demands we become sensitive to beauty, makes the arrival of an era for a more advanced, more mature and freer Society possible. Becoming more sensitive to beauty is an essential task. That is why Art is constantly being censured and turned into a disposable, leisure item.disposable, leisure item. The need for change and greater freedom is the origin of the creative process. We should support with all our strength that which supports and raises sensitivity to the beautiful.
