Dear friends and colleagues,

First and foremost, I hope you and yours are safe, healthy, and supported in this unprecedented time. As I have moved through these months in coping, conversation, and care with our creative community (mostly virtually), the same question keeps arising among us:

What constitutes work that matters right now?

We know we are not neutral and as places and voices for/of the people, we must re-imagine our role in reflecting on, responding to, and bearing witness to this cultural moment. We have both an individual and a collective call to be better.

In thinking about what matters now and what comes next, I welcome you to reach out to me to start a conversation. Individual and internal organizational reflection is the first step to realizing new ways to engage with and support our community and constituents. This is a moment that demands we reckon with our histories and practices to carve out a new path for the future.

Lohar Projects is here to offer a deeper reflection for action with you and your team - from visioning and strategic dialogs facilitated online to providing new approaches for working in more equitable ways with your board, staff, and audience. Whether you are rethinking public engagement, crafting a new strategic plan, or defining a new set of values, I'd love to imagine something new together! 

Finally, I invite you to join me on Tuesday, September 8 at 6:30 pm EST as I present a new (virtual) lecture on making and living in these times, hosted by the Chautauqua School of Art.  It's free and registration is available here. Special thanks to Sharon Louden for the invitation!

Let's use our creative energy to offer action and hope for a future that is ours.

With care! 

P.S. Take a look at Lohar Project's new Public/Press page online and the Services pages to see all that LP has to offer!
