This past year, we have all continued to experience changes that were beyond our control. We moved forward together, despite feeling star-crossed at times, transforming our practice every day.

Even with all this change, we have remained constant in our commitment to centre artistic voices that have been, and continue to be, underrepresented, so their stories may be shared, and shared widely. Your donations and  support are vital to this mission, and we are so grateful.

As the stars rotate around us, the nights grow longer, and the winter settles in again- we are reminded that transformation is part of life. Together, we play a part in shaping the world around us and our future.
