Moving with the Mountain

A collaborative art project created by Suzanne Ross and Iván Camilo Vargas at the Artisans of Peace gathering in Montreat, NC. The poem reads: Fear and beauty erupt as one. Ash merges with the land, Becomes better fruit. People move with the mountain. El miedo y la belleza estallan juntos. La ceniza se funde con la tiera, Se convierte en un mejor fruito. La gente se mueve con la montaña.

Suzanne Ross delves into the profound connection between people and their natural surroundings. Through a transformative experience with the Artisans of Peace, she collaborates on a unique piece of art and poetry, learning to appreciate the symbiotic relationship between a community and its volcano, and challenging her initial perceptions.
