MAG: Writing From Here II

Submitted by on 2020/05/13 – 8:30 am

The last installment of Writing From Here II, in partnership with Latitude 53, launches this weekend! You can read it and previous entries in this series, which explores the critical issues of community, connection, and artists’ relationships, at WritingFromHere.ca. Audio recordings are also available for select letters.

About Writing From Here

The initial intention behind Writing From Here was for the invited artists to share ideas with each other, and generously allow us to read and listen as they reflect on the intertwining ideas between even the birds are walking (curated by Noor Bhangu), Grasping at the Roots (curated by Christina Battle), and more.

However, with the outbreak of COVID-19 and the need for social distancing, community and connection are more needed than ever and the project has continued to expand. In Writing From Here II, each artist will extend an invitation to a community member to write a letter so we can expand the sharing of ideas, as we all process ways to nurture connection at a physical distance.
