In order to build a vibrant community of artists and citizens, I believe you have to be an active participant. Build roots in the communities you want to support and the organizations you want to see thrive. Give time, give money, give mentorship, give visibility… but you must give. As an artist, as a citizen, as a human… it’s what we are here to do.
Here are some of the ways in which I’ve chosen to become involved. Your support of these organizations is extremely welcome, but so is your support of your own organizations.
