2021 Wishes

Dear TaoE Community,

We are beyond grateful to everyone who joined our community this year and delighted the world with authentic and remarkable art and wonderful support for our mission. What a graceful extension of everyone’s warmth, light and depth!

We’ve been inspired, moved and fuelled by your trust.

We aim to be architects of a world that mirrors our community values, and we see those values in everyone’s art. That is why we are so proud of our involvement in the fundraiser for DISCO, a youth literacy organization in Birmingham, Alabama, USA. With your help, we contributed $1000 to this worthy cause, and we had fun doing it.

We’d love to continue to hear from you and see what you are creating.

We will continue to offer the space where you can share your art and ideas and offer our unconditional cheer for your creative breakthroughs. We’d love to continue to learn from everyone, learn together, learn creatively with the goal of making art as a way of being.

On this note, we are happy to share the new issue of Everyone Quarterly with thanks to managing editor Joseph Young for his work conceptualizing and assembling the evocative art, video, and writing. Check out our first themed issue of 2021: Everyone Quarterly 2 – Architecture here.

Please receive our warmest wishes for a healthy New Year full of creativity, compassion, artful energy.

Sincerely,

Florina

Welcome to The Art of Everyone

In writing my book Everything Else, I realised everybody has their own “everything else”—the thoughts and stories, the experiences, the skills, the imagination, the dreams.

Left unexplored or unshared, they can leave a void, depriving our spirit of something beautiful and nourishing. Having learned that, I created the space here to manifest my own "everything else," and to help others share theirs.

The path here is lined with flowers, the walls are endless, the shelves inviting, the table is set, and there is room for adventure. Bring your own creations or just open your soul for a retreat. This is a space to breathe. Leave the conventional world behind and enjoy.

Thank you for being here.
