There’s no moment quite like this. So much of community art is in the journey, the being-together, listening, learning and discovering—and all that is full of wonders too, but it is made meaningful when art comes into being from that shared process: its product, validation and marker. Art that goes out into the world, to find new connections, independent of its creator. And this art, born out of lockdown through the work of people who have met only on Zoom, feels very special.
