In a time of constant change and overlapping challenges, how are Newark’s most creative thinkers working, evolving – and thriving?

Join us every Tuesday at 6PM on Instagram Live to have an in-depth conversation with the young innovators who’ve made this city’s tight-knit community one of the most diverse, interesting, and active in the state.

You’ll be able to ask them questions about their work, their response to the pandemic, and the Black Lives Matter movement – and learn more about the energy that’s making New Jersey’s largest city so resilient.

This week, meet Sally Helmi, a mixed media visual artist, who’s also a nurse. Her healthcare practice and her artistic work inform each other; some of her work, a part of a series called Intimately Held: Safe-keeping through Touch, makes tableaux out of medical supplies. Another project invited people to write their fears on surgical masks. We’ll talk to Sally about making art, and caring for her community, in the middle of a pandemic.
