Artist Statement: The ancient Greeks promoted the concept of catharsis, of coming together through the arts for emotional release. This idea was central to their concept of well-being. By helping people, especially young people, move past trauma and find commonality, the arts cultivate our collective soul. So much has been lost over these past months, and we are at risk of losing a generation of children if we don’t provide safe spaces for their emotional as well as physical recovery. We must act quickly and intentionally to show them that we care, that the world welcomes them, that they are the architects of their next chapter, which can be colorful and beautiful and inspiring.
