Volume II • Issue 1 • Spring/Summer 2017

What does it mean to do this work (or even be alive) in these times?

Our second issue dives deep into the personal and interpersonal depths and brings up a wealth of perspectives and stories. From bi-coastal youth using art as a tool for self-discovery to seasoned practitioners wrestling with the world in which we find ourselves. Volume II is sure to offer something for anyone who comes with a willingness to sit a while with the big questions, both in curiosity and some necessary discomfort.

Come join us in the confluence!
