Happy September!

We've missed you terribly over the summer! Thank goodness our annual fall network mixer is this Wednesday, September 5th. We look forward to seeing your beautiful faces and catching up on what's new in your worlds, and making connections with new members and fellows.

That's right, new fellows! We're so pleased to welcome the Round IX Fellowship cohort (OMG, nine years already!) into the EAP community. As we head toward our ten-year anniversary, we have been taking stock of the incredible evolution and impact the Fellowship Program has had on our fellows and our community. Starting today, we'll be rolling out videos and graphics highlighting the program and some of our incredible alumni.

This will also be Katherin Canton's last season guiding the fellowship and so it's especially poignant and important for us to mark her impactful contribution to the program. We love you, Katherin!

As the fall cultural season begins, we know that the many events, exhibitions, and performances will fill us with joy and inspiration, and also, for real, we know we'll get exhausted. Too little sleep, too much Instagram, too many overtime hours without overtime compensation. So, remember to refill your inner well of creativity, care, and community on a daily basis!

With gratitude,
Rhiannon Evans MacFadyen, Co-Director
Lisa Martin, Interim Project Manager
