I'm thrilled to see our H.E.A.T. community grow as we launch these blogs. As we continue to uplift our mission of inspiring artistic expression and igniting dialogue, it brings me great joy to introduce our writers for the month of August. Sending a warm welcome Sally Bailey: a Professor of Theatre and Director of the Drama Therapy Program at Kansas State University, Meggan Gomez: Theater Conservatory Director at Working Classroom, Sue Hamilton: an artist, activist, and founder of Artists Rise Up LA, and Nia Witherspoon: a multidisciplinary artist investigating the metaphysics of black liberation, desire, and diaspora. Thank you all for your continued engagement with this wonderful work, and be sure to check back every Monday morning for new posts!
