“What was your Revival this year?”
For the past few months, we’ve been planning and preparing a Moment that we’re excited to share with you.
We asked four artists within our community the above question. Their responses, as well as their art, set the framework for a weekend in which we recorded and captured four live performances at Stoodio One, Brooklyn.
In the process of us helping these artists communicate what their Revival looks like through a visual and sonic experience, we answered that question not just for ourselves, but (hopefully) for the New York creative community as well.
What does our Revival look like?
It looks like a thriving community of diverse creatives that support each other. It looks like radical vulnerability and empathy. It looks like love.
