Engagement with our current 2020 global crisis from a multifaceted perspective
This pandemic has brought to the surface realities about many additional parallel crises. Some of those crises are: environmental imbalance with nature's depletion; social insecurity, inequity, and violence; political unrest and greed, along with our individual and community health (psychological, emotional, mental, and physical) that have all been compromised.
The project allowed for building community and archiving through visual documentation of these times as an outcome. Capturing many artists' and practitioners’ unique perspective on this global pandemic crisis, and how it has been affecting us all, supported our creative expressions and in many ways helped us make more sense of the quiet chaos that was unfolding in our lives. We all come from all walks of life and from many continents across the world. Through the artist's creative responses and through reflections, this project presented itself as an opportunity to come together, to share, to paint, to write, to build a community to allow us all to reflect, accept, express, laugh, cry, scream, complaint and have fun in this accepting place we all were "once together". _ Ina Kaur, July 2020
