ActionSpace Connected

ActionSpace Connected is an evolving record of how ActionSpace artists, artist facilitators, volunteers and staff are responding to this very unique and unsettling moment in time. Bringing together submissions from those who make up the ActionSpace family, we want to use this space as an opportunity to highlight the creative and artistic drive at the heart of our organisation and to share our thoughts and feelings with our friends and supporters.

Painting by Miriam-Jane Ramsey. Miriam has written a poem in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Virus

A deadly threat
to life spreads
We sitt
and wait
to passively absorb
the news
We never believed
this could happen
to the world
A malignant organisms
to spiral out of control
and inundate our lives,
these foreign germs
are a warning of the conflict
of the taming of wild microbes
we wash our hands
shake hands with elbows
If we don’t take action
humanity might
be left an orphan
to a mysterious virus
virus.
