"I believe that creativity is our greatest untapped natural resource" -John Quigley. "Everyone's life is a work of art. We are all artists."
Artists ShaniZe and John Quigley, WeRiseUP were the Masters of Ceremonies at the aerial global event. Aerial artist and activist ShaniZe Quigley and her partner-in-art John Quigley created the global event at WeRiseUP in Park City, Utah. Their creation, an aerial art piece, represents a feminist image, a circle of circles. That circle is a metaphor representing how we stand together in the world in unity and in community. It also means social inclusion and rising together.
The Quigleys speak about how the piece came together through empowering others to step into their creativity. 'That changes the world in beautiful ways', says Quigley.
Aerial Artist John Q has created over 150 Human Aerial Art images around the world on every continent. Quigley created the aerial symbol to express an already raising consciousness. While John Quigley interprets what is happening as a rise in feminine wisdom, ShaniZe Quigley observes a new consciousness rising. She explains it as a consciousness of going into the future in our own power as women and as men.
“Spectral Q Aerial Art evolved out of my work as an educator and environmental advocate. I saw a need for communities to express their dreams and to address urgent issues. This unique mix of human installation, aerial photography, and political activism brings together communities to create large-scale messages for the common good. Focusing on themes of health, human rights, social justice, ecological balance, democracy, and freedom, the work strives to liberate the spirit and inspire unity and creative activation through participation.” ~John Quigley
