This collection of essays by artists explores current political and health issues adversely affecting our arts and cultures and how they can possibly be remedied. With this dreadful tragedy of a new disease, our shared suffering and loss confirm our place in Europe more firmly than ever, regardless of those attempting to cut our ties. We must seek unity with those throughout the world who struggle against disease, new and old.
