A note from Artistic Director, Margot Politis - July 2021

Hello Milk Craters & our Community far and wide!

I wanted to say hello and send my heart out to everyone in the hopes that you are all doing well - as well as we can be in this strange time.

To our Collaborative Artists - thank you to everyone who participated in our workshops these past 6 months, you all did an outstanding job! I am so sorry I wasn't able to see most of you in person because of working on our show Tiny Universe. But I was sent photos and videos and have de-briefed with all the Artist Facilitators. I have heard about all of the little moments of beauty you have brought about in these spaces - the magic of Milk Crate as I call it - and my heart has been so warmed by your beautiful artistry, ideas, passion and commitment.

Thank you to all of you who contributed and / or performed in Tiny Universe! Everyone who came along to an idea's session or workshop - your offerings were wonderful and provided the underlying magic of the final outcome.

Truly heart warmed!

And thank you also to everyone - both Collaborative Artists (new and old) and our extended Community - who came to see the show! I am incredibly grateful to all of you, and the wonderful feedback we received.
