Hoooooo-weeee! It’s been a year, hasn’t it? From protests to pandemics, from elections to contesting results, from Kobe to RBG. As a creative community, we’ve felt every negative emotion, with a few positive moments mixed in. And sometimes, it was really really hard to find that spark. But we did it. We’re here. It wasn’t easy, and it took a lot of courage, but we made it to the end of 2020.

It’s not that everything will suddenly heal and be better at the stroke of midnight, when 2020 turns to 2021. But it is worth looking back, reflecting on this manmade disaster of a year. What stood out to you?
