An artist should wait for the permission of no one to create. I’ve said it so many times, but it’s not just a neat quote. It’s a mantra. As my circles became entangled with the Non-Profit world, I heard a few people say that a lot of grants go untapped. That seemed wild to me at first, but when I think about it it begins to make sense. Especially in the creative fields, it’s hard to feel like you have the ability to apply, much less is your work worth it?
