There are still several communities and institutions we are waiting to hear back from and I hope they will be in touch soon!  Luca, myself, and representatives from several of the above communities will be meeting tomorrow night to get on the same page and move our project forward.  I look forward to sharing even more progress with you soon!  Thank you for your continued support.  -Taylor

  1. I am really happy the artists can contribute to supporting the disaster that occurred last year. Every year, financially supporting the victim would be advisable.
    Marching onward with the grace of God,
