#StayHomeLetsCreate project was started in March 2020 as a response to the current COVID-19 pandemic in which people are required to stay at home or shelter and practice physical distancing. Despite the huge burden and struggle faced by countries worldwide, individuals, families and communities are dealing with a great deal of anxiety, desperation, and uncertainty, yet trying to be hopeful.
The basic idea of the project is to support individuals going through pandemic time by encouraging the act of creating and sharing. This project was organized in collaboration with my artist-teacher friends: Hannah Maden and Kyoko Akimoto. Using online platforms such as Instagram and blog page which we considered to be the most relevant method to connect and engage socially in current time, we invited friends, families, communities, and the public to share their creations online with the hashtag #StayHomeLetsCreate.
