We’re rolling out a new series so you have the chance to get to know the wonderful Humans of IP that we get to meet on the ground. Joel Reuben Ganz, a Broadway Actor and Puppeteer, joined us at an Artist Salon in Harlem & shared his defining word & thoughts on Tribalism

“In examining Tribalism, the breakdown I found most important that we identified was about the emotional vs logical constraints. The very things that we use to identify ourselves and sense belonging to a group are often the same things that divide us and cause friction. How do we honor our differences and find a way to accept others and remain inclusive? How can we be actively engaging? In the words of James Arthur Baldwin, ‘not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.’”
