Thedynamics of our group discussions were phenomenon since we got tobecome open-minded as everyone had a differing opinion about theEugene Saturday Market. Everybody in the group had to sacrifice theirclosed minded perception of the event and embrace a dynamic view ofthe event so that we could all brainstorm on the various sectors ofthe event and how it helps every attendee guests and artists alike.Through interacting with my group members, I learnt the aspect ofcollectiveness and togetherness because as the saying goes ‘Diversityis Strength’.
Theconcept of acceptance, this was a life changing concept that hasreally opened my mind into embracing foreign artistic cultures andpractices. Secondly, the concept of team work was a revolutionarytrait that I have learnt through interacting with my group memberssince I was accustomed to working on my own. Thirdly, the idea ofdealing with peoples’ weaknesses was tough dealing with at theinitial discussion with my group members as some of them proved to beignorant of the diversity of cultures and traditions. Optimism wasanother concept I learnt through the group because most of the timeswe would meet as a group to deliberate on the research points eachmember had and some would give unproven facts and figures. The ideaof persistency and consistency was another learning concept Iacquired through group interactions because we had to commitourselves in attending all the group meetings. All these conceptshave influenced my perception of creative arts performances andevents in a positive way.
