Arts Programming Intern
In the course of one week, early this summer, I jumped between the only three places that I have ever lived in for longer than a month. Saturday through Monday, I hastily packed up all of my belongings in Northfield, Minnesota where I attended college. Tuesday and Wednesday, I caught up on sleep in my hometown, outside of Washington D.C. And suddenly and somewhat abruptly on Thursday, I appeared in the hamlet of Wassaic!
The Wassaic Project has been one of my first steps into my post-graduate life — and it has been a joyful and equally contemplative one. My months here have been colored by steep walking inclines, scoops of Maine blueberry ice cream, and a growing mindfulness about what it takes to be a part of a creative and inclusive community.
