ODA-AR21-coverYears like this test you in ways few things do. What really matters? What should we prioritize? What change do we want to see in the world? We’ve asked ourselves all of these questions this past year, and engaged in a constant exercise of what Maxine Greene would call “imagining things as if they were otherwise”.

We reimagined what it means to stay engaged while we’re separated, we rediscovered the true magic of collaboration and community, and we learned that even a small organization can have a big impact.

The arts were our greatest asset through it all—our tools and our teachers. They gave us the power to imagine and to create new possibilities. They kept us together, gave us comfort and solace, and allowed us to see ourselves and each other in the midst of incredible uncertainty and pain.

We prioritized equity—addressing racial and disability justice in everything we do at the programmatic and organizational levels. And we kept ourselves and eachother accountable through hundreds of hours of training, staff meetings, and institutional systems work.

This year, we grew, and you were right there with us. With gratitude, I invite you to read this Highlights Report that shares the ways we Connected, Created, and Reimagined this year.
