Creativity Conversation - Photographer talks w/ Dir. of Tibetan Studies + Dinner

Hey folks near Emory and Decatur!  Let's do something out your way and see if some midtowners or OTPers will join in; how about a creativity lecture and grab some dinner afterwards in the Decatur area?

If you are interested in creativity, photography, or perhaps how Buddhist philosophy might apply to these, (?) This Emory Tibet Week event sounds like a promisingly unique discussion to me anyway.  It's a light week and this gets us to Decatur with some different themes.

Here is their description: 

Photographer and Emory alumnus Jon Kolkin 73C 77M and Dr. Tara Doyle, director of the Tibetan Studies Program, discuss the creative process in seeking wisdom and balance within our lives and how Kolkin's photography illuminates these ideas. Kolkin's photographic series Seeking Wisdom will be on exhibit in the Chace Gallery in the Schwartz Center for Performing Arts during Tibet Week.


Thanks - hope to see you there!  Ted -[masked]

      Thanks for the update Joann! We will see you next time if we can, for sure. If you are from Decatur the photographer's work is up (allegedly) in the Schwartz Center but it was locked up tight when we got there, so check hours if you want to see his prints. Seems like some nice photos of subjects off limits to most of the world.

    If you arrive early, take a look in the Schwartz Center in the Chase Gallery there for some of Kolkin's work. Here's a link to the campus map, you can see parking, and the Schwartz and Carlos Museum buildings nearby. http://emap.fmd.emory.edu/website/campus/index.htm#?queryzoom=Yes&Query=%28bldg=%273261%27%29

      Hi Joann! It's windy here so there might be delays, I have not heard yet. Thankfully it's a later discussion getting started at 7:30, but even if you don't make it over to Emory please feel free to txt [masked]) if you want to join us for discussion after; Jessica had some good suggestions for places.

    Looking forward to tomorrow evening! Amy do you have anywhere you would like to add, or any of Jessica's get a seconding from you? Hamza will you join us?

    I am about to announce on The Dayglow Technicolor ActionPack meetup so maybe some of those guys will join us too!

    Is this location near the main campus at Emory?

    March 22, 2014

    • Ted F.

      Hamza I believe it's on the main campus. It's the Michael C. Carlos Museum, However the detail I do not know is, the photographer's work seems to be in a different building or gallery and I have not looked that up yet to see if its close enough to walk to.

  • Ted F.

    Hey Amy and Jessica! Since you are our early sign-on people, how about you get a bonus of suggesting some places you would like to go after for food (and/or drinks) and discussion?
