Since the beginning of civilization fermentation has mystified humans. Ancient legends
say we were taught by sacred beings to make fermented beverages containing a magical
substance, a spirit that awakens dormant capacities within us.
A cursory look at the process of fermentation reveals connections with our personal
experiences of transformation. Fermenting implies agitation, excitement or tumult. It is the
process by which old ideas, habits and patterns are overturned and new insight is introduced to
strengthen us and ensure our flourishing. As artists our creative experience often ferments from
initial intent into surprising transformations. It is our growth process.
Convergence is calling artists to submit works that express, share or observe
fermentation in a creative, personal, spiritual or global sense. You are invited to share what is
fermenting inside you!
