Please email us at [email protected] with the subject header ‘Artivism’ and let us know what you want to do. We can make arrangements to see some of your work (Try not to stress about this part – we’ve been in a pandemic for almost two years) We are not expecting something current for you to show.
We have performance slots completely open for July 2022 onwards.
Centered and Balanced
Written by: Kirsteen Main
I am so ready to be free
of expectations and frustrations
when I cannot control
What is happening around me.
I feel like the only control I have
is my feeling of peace and acceptance.
What could be better than
Having control over that?
I want everyone to know
Just how wonderful
peace and acceptance can be.
If only people could experience
being centered and balanced
I think there would be
a lot less frustration around here
