The Collective Care interview series brings together people who are changing the world. These are folks who work in either creative, healing, or activist work – people who are dedicated to a more compassionate world. They’ll talk about what care means to them, what it looks like in their lives, and how they resource themselves.
It’s about building community, summoning courage, and recognizing our interdependence.
I created this because I want you to know that you are not alone.
