We don’t like to talk about this year. Just kidding! It was a difficult transitional time for everyone, to say the least. Halfway through the year, while we are in full gear with our programming across different schools in Lawrence, the Covid-19 pandemic forces us to pivot to virtual offerings —we begin doing art challenges on Instagram to engage our follower-base creatively while the country was on lockdown. We also begin a virtual program at Phoenix Academy Lawrence, “Journal Away 2020” — we sent them boxes full of art supplies and met once a week to converse, create, and commiserate with each other about our experiences with the Covid-19 pandemic. Ultimately, the time we had at home helped us reconfigure ourselves individually and as an organization — leading to a renewed vision and a new sense of hope for our mission.
