To all of our friends, family, colleagues, and supporters near and far, we at The LP want to say: We’re all in this together. Taking inspiration from our community of artists and neighbors, we wish to underscore the importance of community and self care in this overwhelming moment of public health and economic crisis. During this period, we will strive to share resources; to spread joy; to advocate for relevant change for the health and stability of our communities; and to provide platforms for community connection. To start, feel free to take a look at and share this resource list we’ve compiled from our community, colleagues and peers. And visit us on social media via Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
We also look forward to sharing original writings, interviews, and videos related to community mapping and representation, to remind us of the value of the local and the collective in this moment––all coming soon here on our Spin Cycle Blog! Take care, everyone, and join us in meditating on this truth about abundance in community from poet Gwendolyn Brooks:
We are each other’s harvest; we are each other’s business; we are each other’s magnitude and bond.
