Who We Are

The year is 2020 and the entire world has slowed down for one reason: to help save our fellow humans. With worldwide shutdowns, and separation from family and loved ones, we are more isolated than usual. Our communities have been forced to adapt to a changing landscape that is primarily viewed through a screen. We wear masks to protect those who need support, but cannot see the fellow grocery shopper’s facial expression or connect through a smile.

 

What’s even odder is that we’re facing this challenge, perhaps for the first time, as a global community.

 

Our essential workers keep our infrastructure running and provide basic services so that we can live our lives largely unaltered. Sure, Amazon Prime might not deliver your package for 8 weeks, but really- how much of an issue is that?

 

Our other essential workers, the artists, have been displaced from their jobs. Musicians' gigs, tours, recording sessions, and most other streams of income have disappeared virtually overnight.

 

We need art. Anyone who has watched a movie, read a book, or listened to music during this time, knows how important artists are to our global health. We need help making sense of our lives through the vision of a songwriter’s lyrics, social commentary in a tv show, or through emotions evoked when listening to a beautiful piece of music.

 

So how do we foster connection in an environment where limitations of physical distancing and the desire to do the right thing take precedence?

 

We connect safely. And with intention.

We need you. And you need us.
