The new work, entitled “Touchy Subjects”, is a musical meditation on the real phenomenon of “touch starvation” that many are experiencing since the onset of social distancing. “Touchy Subjects” will explore the tonalities of touch, or the ways in which we physically connect to the world we inhabit have changed.

AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

ABOUT THE IGNITE THE ARTS LIVESTREAM

Dear Friends,

We want to begin by acknowledging that this has been a difficult two weeks for many, our team included. We hope you are well and safe.

We’ve made the decision to postpone this week’s telethon.

We chose the date for this event prior to the start of worldwide protests seeking justice for the murders of George Floyd, Tony McDade, and Breonna Taylor, to name but a few of the most recent victims of white supremacy and police violence in our nation. These protests have accomplished an incredible amount in a short time, and it is our fervent wish that the progress continues unabated when so much still needs to be done.

We believe that proceeding with the telethon as planned would be out of step with what the present moment requires. Attempting to generate attention for this event when it is needed elsewhere would be antithetical to our commitment to opposing racism and oppression.

We also acknowledge that the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact the lives and livelihoods of artists, disproportionately affecting communities of color. Until we can produce a fully-fledged telethon at an appropriate time, we still want to amplify the work of our artists by sharing it with our larger network.

Specifically, if you’re using your platform as an artist to dismantle white supremacy and advance the goals of the Black Lives Matter movement, we would like to feature your work on social media and/or in our blog. Please complete this brief survey to quickly let us know about your antiracism work as an artist. We’ll be in touch if and when there is an opportunity to feature your project.

Rest assured, we still plan to produce this telethon event (and others like it) with your fiscally-sponsored project featured in the lineup. If you’ve already started spreading the word about this telethon and invited folks to our Facebook event, you have our thanks, not only for promoting the event but also for understanding the need to disrupt the plan. You can share this announcement with your audiences via the URL below.

We’ll be in touch soon with more info and rescheduled dates. Thank you for again for your flexibility and understanding.

Sincerely,

The Team at Fractured Atlas
