“We realized when we started on Zoom that this was, in some ways, better. It created a new space where people could let go and stop being performative. At the end of the day, it all comes back to being connected to another human being- in whatever space you’re in- and using these (virtual) tools to do just that.”

No matter how bad things get, art brings hope. In this first episode of Season 2, Risa and Steve speak to being an artist in 2020 in the face of a worldwide pandemic, systemic racism, and an election; where the Industry is headed, and whatever uncertainty and distress result from it all. And how keeping hope- and your art- alive is both a soul-serving necessity and a revolutionary declaration that we are still here, we are still feeling, we are still human. All you have to do is show up!
