Halfway through December now, moving towards 2017. Our indoor plants provide us with sweet oxygen and greenery and are immune from the crazy hot days we just experienced. These beautiful plants and our worm farm remind me once again of how much we depend on nature to give us a life to live and how we must also think of how our day to day activities stress the biosphere.
With this in mind, we look forward to a huge year in 2017 with performance projects; The Bond, writing and illustration with Root and Branch, HipHop through 4ELEMENTS and RESPECT and community stories through COMPACT being given a new life to share through podcast, image and passion.
2016 was a crazily productive year that you can all read about in our annual report. All of us here at BYDS wish our readers a happy holiday and hope the season gives you time to reflect on the importance of friends and family.
