Weekly Links | Hopeful Perspectives | Humanity at Work | Participatory Lit Fun

What captured out attention on the web this week?  Opinion pieces, news items and events that are focused on bringing people together through our most fundamental means: art and hope.

We were heartened by Rebecca Solnit’s piece on hopefulness in action, in our tumultuous times.

We were introduced to the work of the Be Human Project and its mission to make the workforce more human-centered.

We marked our calendars for the U.S. Department of Arts and Culture’s participatory lit event this Sunday (July 24th) in Brooklyn, NY.

Have a wonderful weekend!
