Joyce van der Lely (Dutch artist and educator) has a wonderfully encouraging and infectious warmth to her which made it a pleasure to be interviewed by her for “All of You” - a series of conversations and explorations on how to include every fabulous thing that you have to offer, created for multi passionate women seeking harmony in life and work.
This free event starts today / tomorrow as Joyce is in New Zealand so for many of us we are a day behind. She leads frequent facebook lives from her this cosy corner in her studio that is like a sanctuary.
When I first chatted to Joyce in an interview to see if we thought we could work together there was one line of coincidence which was her memory of holidays in Wales, including to Aberystwyth and to that town with the name longer than the railway station. This mixed with my memories of a summer school with the amazing David Zambrano at the School for New Dance Development (now part of the Academy of Theatre and Dance, Amsterdam University of the Arts) when I was a student.
Then what clinched it for me was the combination of our fluid conversation and the painting Joyce has in her office which was like a wild circle. It could have been an illustration for a short story of Borges. I love spirals and when she told me it was a work she'd made when figuring out her relationship to time, I was convinced.
She has gathered really wild and whacky bunch of speakers who are from the fields of Mindset, Self-empowerment, Spirituality, Branding, Business/Careers, Creativity, Shamanism and more.
With such a combination of Doodlers, Educators, Creative Directors, Feng Shui Consultants, Lifestyle Business Coaches, Poets, Transformational Coaches, Film-makers and much more, this event won't be for everyone yet for anyone exploring, re-examining their life choices and pondering what else there is to life, then there is sure to be at least one talk that will catalyse some unsung aspect or dormant desire into finding its feet.
