Mutual Aid and Art

“Doing something that might not work for the benefit of others”. That’s our inspiring definition of art.

A perfect example of this definition are all the mutual aid organizations that have sprouted up across the country (and the world) in response to Covid-19. Read more about them in this excellent New Yorker piece HERE.

Those who started these groups had little to no money, resources or plan. They had no clue if their ideas would work. They just had a burning desire to help. And proceeded from there.

It’s remarkable what they’ve been able to accomplish.
