Love in the Time of COVID-19
Community-engaged Art for Social Change (ASC) in the Time of COVID-19 We at ICASC hope that everyone reading this note is healthy and weathering the emotional, economic and creative challenges of this pandemic. The ASC community is resilient and innovative; our skills and ways of being are more relevant than ever in this time of uncertainty and unprecedented change. ICASC is here to support you as we all search for and find new ways to continue our important work. Many of us are used to drawing on our knowledge to help others, but this is also a time for self- care. Please, take the time to nourish your whole being, through your art, meditation, physical activity or whatever practices keep you well. We will do our best over the coming weeks and months to gather and share information about new strategies, especially online approaches that artists are using and testing in Canada and around the globe. We will be dealing with the pandemic for months to come; the strategies we develop now will strengthen and enrich our relationships and activities in the future. We send very best wishes to you; may strength, wisdom and love carry us through the days to come.
