The report offers insights from conversations with Black and African American adults around the U.S., as part of Slover Linett’s pandemic-era national research collaboration, “Culture + Community in a Time of Transformation: A Special Edition of Culture Track.” Interviews were conducted by Melody Buyukozer Dawkins, PhD of Slover Linett and by Ciara Knight, an independent researcher specializing in equitable evaluation methods, with support from Slover Linett team members Tanya Treptow, PhD and Camila Guerrero. The participants generously shared stories and reflections about how cultural activities, creativity and expression, and self-care can contribute to connection and well-being. The co-authors have synthesized those rich insights and offered reflections and strategic provocations that can inform practice, funding, and policy across the arts and culture field.
