As creative individuals, our work inspires others. We synthesize our thoughts into narratives that speak for a community. This ability for self-reflection and dedication to seeing a project to completion also better prepares us to weather trying times. By more closely knowing ourselves, we can more confidently persevere through the unknowns.
Inspiration can't be stifled by physical separation; artists, writers, musicians, and performers will continue to create. Even though many are temporarily removed from art studios, print shops, galleries, or venues, we can still work together and create work that uplifts.
With that in mind, we wanted to share with you some of the things we’re doing to protect our participants. We implemented multiple policies and procedures to ensure that we can continue to host events while also prioritizing the safety of artists and the public.
