In 2019, Vashon Center for the Arts, the Vashon Heritage Museum exhibit “In and Out: Being LGBTQ on Vashon Island,” and 4Culture sponsored a special panel that set the show’s themes of hidden shame, mentoring, and marriage in a wider set of perspectives.
Panelists Jami Sieber, Latosha Correll, Leo MacLeod, and Matt Baume shared stories and reflections in response to the question of how we transform into our truest selves.
How does art help us know ourselves more fully? How can rituals like a ceremony of marriage or theater itself offer the possibility of healing? How do we make sense of historical change as we experience it in our own lives, acknowledging both the blessings and the curses of the past?
Take a peek at the video below to see how our panelists responded to these questions.
