In a time of physical distancing during an unprecedented global pandemic, how can community survive and thrive? The arts and creative placemaking have been that thread that kept us close. In this DPC I explore how different genres and mediums of art kept our communities alive and brought us closer to one another when our bodies remain physically apart. I engage with each piece personally and explore how we can take what we are learning now forward into the future.
