The CFW has given me an excellent foundation for staying engaged with my creative projects. In the past it has been too easy for me to get pulled into several different directions with my time and energy, to the point where my confidence to pursue the things that matter most to me has been eroding.
Immersing myself in the CFW’s primary questions of what is important to me and what I need to do to make those things happen — as well as in the words of support and wisdom from Jessica and my classmates — has rebuilt and increased that confidence.
This is particularly noteworthy since the fall 2016 election and this new politics of cruelty. The new skill sets that I have learned from taking the CFW have been a lifeline for me, both in terms of my consistent engagement with my creative projects as well as how I live my life in general.
In fact, I have been inspired to co-found an artist accountability group that I have been actively participating in since July.
