Nadine’s workshop helped me articulate pragmatic and conceptual consequences of my work and was the first space I’ve ever been encouraged to claim and shape my own conceptual approach. The workshop coached me to realize where I get stuck and examine it as an interesting problem to explore in itself, rather than feeling “wrong” and censoring the creative energy that took me there. I felt reminded that my work is meaningful and needed–the workshop was a supportive session for sifting and winnowing, and I loved the community building of it all!
