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 the dreadful tragedy of a new disease, our shared suffering and loss of lives confirm our place in Europe more firmly than ever, regardless of those attempting to cut our ties. We should seek unity with people throughout the world, who are desperately struggling against disease, new and old. Especially as we share this struggle against a background of tragic and outrageous environmental losses, in tandem with the global consequences of servitude to a failing economic system. By celebrating our diversity and differences, and with the upmost solidarity, we may yet turn the tide of disaster threatening to overwhelm our health, our cultures, our arts and our planet.
