Call us crazy, but we’re thankful for 2020by Tim Miner & Matt Olin on November 25, 2020
|Prepare yourselves for a massive understatement …
No one will ever want to relive 2020.
Really going out on a limb there, right? From a rancorous Presidential election to unspeakable acts of racism and injustice, to a pandemic, economic ruin, global sandstorms, murder hornets, fire tornados, flash floods, we’ve all been put through the wringer. And, it looks like 2021 is going to be a bit of an “after-party,” with a great deal of uncertainty ahead. The work is far from done.
And, yet … there have been bright spots. We’ve seen the flashes of Charlotte’s creative brilliance revealed. Time and again, the best of our creative community showed up to combat the worst life has to offer.
At every moment and every step along the 2020 way, Queen City creatives, local nonprofits and social entrepreneurs showed up.
They used their talents to help others. Whether helping to keep businesses or our collective spirits alive, creatives brought their passion to bear. Whether raising funds or raising consciousness (we’re looking at you “Black Lives Matter” muralists), the creative community rose to the challenge.
It’s been our honor to share those incredible stories here in The Biscuit. Thank you for reading. We assure you, creatives are just getting warmed up … and so are we.
We knew that Charlotte is a creative city. You knew it, too.
