Fermentation
Description
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!
