Reflection on Cork's 1st Wild Ones Salon
by Kel Menton
I have tried these last few months to say yes to more things. Will you write this? Can you help out next week? Do you want to curate this event? My modus operandi was to say yes, and figure it out later.
Most of it has led to good things, or at least good learning experiences.
The Wild Ones Salon, though, has been one of the best things I have been a part of in a very long time.
The world has felt especially huge and scary and antagonistic over the last 18 months. A general sense of helplessness, bordering on hopelessness, had begun to permeate my bones. What can I do? I want to help leave the world better than I found it, but that’s a huge task for a single person.
The Wild Ones Salon (held on 12th June 2021)was a reminder that it isn’t just me vs the forces of evil.
All sorts of amazing people exist around me, and they’re all fighting to make a kind world. You are those people.
