Date and Time
Two Dots coworking collective
110 Johnston St, Fitzroy VIC 3065, Australia
Beauty isn't only found in perfection - sometimes cracks, chaos and wrinkles can be perfectly beautiful. In this meetup, John explores the landscape of Beauty as it currently exists in a consumer society, and the way in which Beauty could be recontextualised to change not just people’s appreciation of art but of themselves.
John's talk will challenge the beliefs we have of who we are, give us a new perspective on society and insight on identifying beauty within ourselves. It will inspire us to seek true beauty, capture it and create it in our art and journey.
John Englezos is a freelance photographer, a spoken word poet and Melbourne’s 2015 Poetry Slam Champion. John was on the first Australian team to represent at the National Poetry Slam in Denver Colorado in 2017. His creative work centres around notions of Hope, Identity and Wonder. He has run workshops in the fields of live performance and visual arts, is a speaker coach for Tedx St Kilda, and an uncle to four amazing kids.
