Through art we communicate across boundaries, over oceans and through austerity. Politics and religion don't hinder our creativity but feed it, it's how we understand each other and love each other, with or without words.
Our thoughts are with all those affected by the explosion on Monday night at the arena. The city has been shaken but the people haven't faltered, showing the true Northern Spirit we're known for. Courage and solidarity are stronger than ever. Politicians, religious leaders and artists stood together at the vigil on Tuesday night, as it should be, making us proud to be born here or drawn here... As Tony Walsh so aptly reminded us, This Is The Place. #WeStandTogether.
PANDA encourages you to keep focusing on courage, collaboration and creativity in the face of difficult times.
