Stuck at Home(together)
As we physically isolate ourselves due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our need for social connection to get through these uncertain and challenging times is more important than ever.
Based on a growing body of scientific research, we know creative activities help to reduce anxiety while promoting meaningful connections—even when we can’t be in the same room with each other. Our goal here is to offer a wide range of opportunities for engaging in creative expression, plus sharing and connecting with others. We’re glad you’re here!
