Climbing the Walls is a project that brought together for artists across the genres to contribute, visual art, music, monologues, and poetry that explore the ways we are experiencing life now and how we imagine the future. Climbing the Walls was conceived from a desire to create in a time of disorientation and disconnection. When we first conceived of the project, it was a way to connect and explore a shift in the moment. As we continued, we incorporated not only the time of co-vid and quarantine, but the BLM protests and other social issues that emerged in artists’ work. As more and more people decided to participate, across all genres, we realized how lucky we were to be in an artistic community that came together and contributed.
