Joyous Call to Action
Connection in Isolation
We would love to invite you to be a part of a Consenses Project.
One of Consenses’ goals is to initiate connection between people. We can all feel connected and learn from those distanced from us by listening to their unique perspectives and sharing our own.
So we ask you to create & share.
Watch the video, upload your art, then copy and paste the below message to send what you create to your friends & family.

Letter to copy and paste to FRIENDS & FAMILY:
I’m part of a global game of ‘Telephone,’ except I’m not passing a word, but rather a work of art. You’re tagged.
Interpret this piece of art I just created (in reaction to someone else’s art).
Express it in the medium of your choice in less than 24 hours (ex. you might create a painting, poem, song, dance, short film, fashion design etc. in reaction) there’s no wrong answer, just try to express the essence of what I’ve created in a different medium.
Upload your creation to this link: https://consenses.wpengine.com/joyous-call-to-action/ and in the comment area say what you interpreted, what you created in reaction and why.
Share. Send a file of the artwork you create (your song, dance, painting, poem, sculpture, stop animation, recipe, fashion design, jewelry etc. do not include my artwork) to at least 10 friends with this same message.
There’s no other goal in this project than to find our common humanity and see our connectedness grow as our art spreads around the globe inspiring and teaching us all how to see the world through each other’s eyes. This project comes from The Consenses Curriculum, a unique, multidisciplinary approach to building social-emotional skills through the arts. Students engage in a structured collaborative process of creating Interpretive Chains (like a game of telephone), using a range of media to engage all five senses as they build understanding and appreciation for the value of diverse perspectives.
