Using art to combat COVID-19, isolation and build resilience. Instead of keeping apart, this community is safely keeping strong together. With the help of community organizers, the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture has launched #artdisplays4homestays to encourage residents to display homemade works of art. The program is part of Seattle Together, a community response aimed at growing social networks and supporting neighborhoods in the wake of this COVID-19 pandemic. “We all have to be stewards of the communities we live and work in and also stewards of the things we want to see more of in the world,” says founder and CEO Louie Gong, a member of the Nooksack tribe.
