When we turn to dust, the work we do often goes with us, so why do we do it? To connect with others. This year’s show recognizes the circle of life within creativity, personally or within a project. The celebration of exploring and having the courage to stay curious.
To help us all feel less alone, to feel inspired, to create the possibility of change, and ultimately to live a better life, a better now.
