Toe River Arts Supporters, 

As the new Executive Director, I am blown away by the warmth and compassion of our supporters. As most of you know, this community holds a very special place in my heart. I am constantly inspired by the community of artists and arts supporters living and working in the counties we serve.
It has been a difficult week for many of us. As often happens with social media, information has been shared and augmented beyond a recognizable size and I will not pass the blame. Many people are hurting. We are here to provide safe places to discuss sensitive topics. We are also here to support our community in any way deemed necessary. Our community is made up of many different people and perspectives. On one hand we recognize the need to provide engaging and challenging arts experiences, on the other we recognize that difficult themes need to be discussed in a safe and supportive environment. As we move forward, I hope we can better communicate with all of you. I honestly believe this experience will open the door for many important conversations and collaborations.
This community is resilient, passionate, and loving. There is no other place like it on earth and I am committed to ensuring your voices are always a part of the dialogue. I am a firm believer that a community finds strength in its differing perspectives and I am committed to the idea that there is a seat at the table for each of us.
