In these times of social distancing we’re not allowed to hug each other… Fortunately, art is still embracing us and guiding us through this crisis with it’s images, stories and sounds. During the semi-lockdown we read books and poetry, listened to music and podcasts, watched 100 movies, participated in an online dance course, saw something new in that painting on the wall..
Art is hugging you, even in times of crisis. Do you hug back?
How can you hug art? Your favorite band, that special performer, the funny comedian, that mesmerizing dancer, the small theater in your neighbourhood; how are they doing?
Maybe they’ve made something for you in this period and you could buy this, as a great pleasure and investment for yourself and for them. Or maybe you can support them in any other way, to make sure they can continue to embrace you with their creativity, also in these changing times. Let love flow, from art to you and back.
Artists, please write a post using #kunstknuffel, so our and your fans can find out how they can embrace and support you in these challenging times.
