In our last newsletter I mentioned how artists and creative thinkers have historically played instrumental roles in navigating and helping to solve challenging situations with innovative solutions. In just the short few past weeks (though it feels a lot longer) this fact has been omnipresent as those in our field are providing integral services during the pandemic for the betterment of all. Please see below for some tangible and timely examples.
In addition to the stories, the SAN Arts Program continues to adapt our programming while remaining committed to our two main focus areas: Customer Experience and Community Engagement. Though it's true that business at the airport has been significantly impacted by the crisis, much like many businesses, it's also true that San Diego International Airport continues to support those who support us. This includes the large percentage of travelers who call San Diego home, neighbors in the surrounding communities, those who own small local businesses - including artists, arts and culture organizations, designers, fabricators, etc. It is with this support, from leadership at the airport and from you, that we continue to work hand-in-hand to highlight the richness and the responsiveness of the region's creative communities in new ways. Please read on further below for more information about our film initiative as well as interactive art-making opportunities.
