Inclusive with Dani Cabs
– Hosted at The Sideshow
part of a series on Inclusive
The team at the Flip Creative Agency Brisbane are a small bunch of talented individuals who are passionate about visual arts and all things digital. They keep things simple, elegant and streamlined. This allows us to attack jobs of all sizes while still bringing their own unique style to everything they touch.
Wacom wants to inspire people and make the world a more creative place through its natural and intuitive line of digital pen tablets, pen displays and styluses. Whether a creative enthusiast seeking a new artistic outlet or a high-end professional making the next big animated movie or industrial design, Wacom allows people to explore creativity at a level they never dreamed possible.
Drawing on a myriad of talents coupled with an abundance of energy, we strive to create an extraordinary wonderland amongst the stifling city saturation. We are a community of creators who are passionate about sharing a wide variety of art forms and knowledge to a wider audience. We believe that Brisbane deserves a ground roots creative, social hub for artists, musicians, crafters, performers, practitioners and students alike. The Sideshow offers a wide and ever changing selection of workshops, entertainment nights and community events. We will also be focusing on live music and performances at the tail end of each week. Delivering high quality master classes from local and international performers. Our various events will give a chance for local musicians and performers to showcase their art forms. This is a unique place that lets us connect and share our passions with one another.
Our speaker this month, Daniel Cabrera (aka Dani Cabs) is an actor, MC, facilitator, photographer, clown and all round nice guy based in Brisbane.
In 2014, as a self-taught clown, Dani migrated from working as a visual artist to writing and performing various award-winning shows at numerous festivals both nationally and internationally, such as Edinburgh Fringe and Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
From early on in his performance career, Dani found joy in providing a platform for his audiences to play and perform. His style strongly focused toward interactive theatre and characters.
He believes that play is an essential part of an individual’s healthy well being, a fact that is neglected the older we get, thus providing the motivation for his artistic works.
When different people come into our lives, they bring gifts.
We can blend the best of our wisdom with the best of theirs. We can teach and learn from each other to produce closer circles that foster community and commit to diversity. People who include with intention, raise their hand to do the work of embracing what is unfamiliar.
Inclusion is an attitude to consciously be open to ideas that come from outside of our settled ways of thinking or feeling. It’s about making a decision that comes from a place of love, of caring for others.
When you place inclusivity at the center of how you live, it has great power to heal, elevate new voices, and change the narrative of who belongs. As diversity advocate Vernā Myers once said, “Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance.”
Our Grand Rapids chapter chose this month’s exploration of Inclusive, Libby VanderPloeg illustrated the theme, and WordPress.com is presenting the theme globally.
