Community is not simply a social structure, but an important part of life that keeps us feeling connected to one another. Merriam-Webster defines community as: “A unified body of individuals,” and I would like to go one step further and state the necessity of this unification. Without community we are left to ourselves, without the opportunity to share personal successes, struggles, experiences, and joys. My work focuses on connection, and I aim to find ways to foster it when the opportunity to connect may be washed away by circumstance. The journey into parenthood is a wild and unpredictable one, which relies heavily on the passing on of advice, guidance, warnings, and humor. When a pandemic takes over our typical day-to-day, we must find ways to cope and still find this type of comfort from others. Kitchen Table Art Club brings workshops into the home, where we create space to build relationships and form communities, while also learning new artistic skills. Stories of Parenthood collects experiences, giving a voice and validity to everyone on this shared journey through life.
