The Arterie is curating creative prompts for you during The Great Pause

April 1st, 2020: On the orders of our government, and our professional college, The Arterie offices are closed to the public for the time of self-isolation, until this pandemic is no longer a risk to ourselves and our clients.

We continue to work: Sarah, Claudia, Sonomi, Sarah S, and Alicia in isolation, through telemedicine.

In our sessions during this Great Pause, we have been heartened by some good: children's once-strained relationships with siblings, now fortified; strain from long-commutes remedied; starry-skies returning. There is no balance, though: the death toll; the untold financial cost of this pandemic. We don't make light.

But we did make a short film called Equinox to brighten this dark day, to slow your racing mind, perhaps to inspire your original digital devices to create. If you are reading this, you're wishing for a dose of arts & healing, and since we can't meet together, we send this on out until we can. Please watch this with whomever you are living out these times with.

And thanks to you, out there, essential services, that cannot do their work remotely.


Yours, Sarah Brodie, on behalf of the Arterie team
