The impact of COVID-19 on our world community has been vast. We’re in uncertain times right now – economically, socially, and culturally. Our thoughts are with all of you and we hope you’re safe and healthy. We are reminded of just how critical it is to support one another during these challenging times.
The virus demonstrates that everything is connected, it knows no boundaries. We believe that through this, there is an opportunity to foster connectivity through non-physical means. In this time of physical distancing, there is an opportunity for social solidarity and internal reflection.
We acknowledge the powerful, positive effect virtual and live experiences provide. Enter, our guide for creativity coping with quarantine. In healing response to Covid 19, the Mongolian Culture and Heritage Center of Colorado is utilizing the power of art and freedom of expression to launch Dream Yurt Virtual Project on Instagram @ DreamYurtProject.
