Community of the Future Creatives Virtual Showcase
Our nation, state, and communities have experienced big changes and challenges over the few years. The coronavirus pandemic, the tragic deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and others, as well as a new state flag in our home state of Mississippi and new leadership, brought tears, joy, and sometimes confusion. Many of us will never forget that the longest spring break ever turned into months of virtual school.
To reflect on what we can learn from the events of 2020 and early 2021 and envision what could come next, we invited young people and talented creators to submit a piece of writing or art for our virtual Community of the Future Creatives Showcase. Through their artistry, the youth reflected deep pain but an even deeper sense of possibility.
