Some days we need little reminders about the power of the arts. This week we’ve been pouring over two reports that have provided that kind of reminding; one by Springboard for the Arts and the other by the British Council. Both beautifully capturing the importance of the arts and culture in reconciliation, community, and building resilience. They’re certainly worth a READ. We’re also hoping to see you at this week’s YPA tour of The Other Art Fair (free!) or we hope you enjoy some of the other events under GO. And APPLY features some great opportunities for young professionals like you. Here’s to a successful week for all!
