Creative acts whether in science or the arts are seldom the result of individual effort. More often they are the result of the creative collaboration of two or more people as in apprenticeships and collaborative efforts among peers. In this session, we will explore this topic through the writings and life of Vera John-Steiner. In addition to readings, a video documenting the Sh’ma Project, hosted by Suki John (project director and choreographer) depicts, in dance, her mother’s resilience as a teen-ager in a Nazi concentration camp during WWII.
