Taylor’s talk draws on her founding in 2012 her founding of Consenses, a global, multidisciplinary, artistic collaboration involving 140 artists from around the world. Consenses’ mission is to promote tolerance, empathy, creativity and peace by providing art as a language and a lens through which to see ourselves, each other and our world more compassionately and expansively. In this effort, she is dedicated to enlarging the scope of artistic collaboration, the recognition of art as a journey, and the intimate exploration of the individuated human experience.
Sally Taylor is an artist. She is the daughter of rock legends James Taylor and Carly Simon. Living in Boulder, Colorado in 1998, and reluctant to sign to a major recording label, she formed her own and ambitiously produced and recorded three albums (Tomboy Bride, Apt #6S and Shotgun). She and a 5-piece band toured 180 days of the year between 1998-2003. Retiring from the road at 30, she moved to Boston with her husband, Dean Bragonier. She teaches at Berklee College of Music.
