lessons in seeking

our movement, The Republic, held a recent culture pub event on nov.6th.  it was called Libero, and it was very much a gathering of people seeking freedom - freedom to express themselves creatively, freedom to relate to others in an environment that was engaging, freedom to live heroically.  

once again, the culture pub experiment here in barrie has surprised me.  even though i think i understand the trajectory theoretically, the reality of its outworking catches me off-guard.  i'd no sooner posted bills advertising Libero when someone facebooked me with a message about her photography, saying that she'd noticed one of our posters and was interested to find out if we'd let her participate in an upcoming event.

so are we seeking out the artists, or have they been seeking for people like us all along?
