What Happens Next?

Here are some responses to the questions asked in this mission:



1. Which challenges and social problems should Evoke tackle next? Where to build Evoke communities? Who to encourage to play season 2?

Emergency Call to Action to All Artists and Poets

During a crisis, as was stated by Harvard's Nieman Guide for Crisis Journalism, it is important for people to have things to do and to make decisions--to help them manage their fear. I would call on artists and poets to organize a kind of online art/poetry therapy session for which people could contribute artistic representations of their fears and how… Continue

Listen to the Right People
