With all the terrible things going on it's a bit hard to get in the right headspace to start this year off with the drive and optimism that we were all hoping for. Like many of our friends and peers, we're all trying to figure out what we can do together as creatives in terms of trying to balance our sincere wishes for peace and safety alongside our drive to make a living with our unique gifts and abilities, and the systematic change that needs to happen to make this a sustainable reality.
For me, there's a healthy amount of distraction going on, while at the same time doing whatever small and big gestures we can to be a force of kindness and compassion in whatever way possible.
This week, we've put the regular Jacky Winter social media feed on hiatus in order to help amplify our artist's messages of support and fundraising for the Australian Bushfire Crisis.
Through Lamington Drive, we are also running our own fundraiser which you can find the details of Here. For the next four weeks, 100 percent of the proceeds from our Risographica stock will be donated to a different charity each week. For the rest of this week, we'll also be throwing in a free print with each order.
Until then, we've been collecting the tributes and fundraising efforts of our artists and colleagues, some of which you can find below.
Until next week, stay safe and walk lightly.
