Dear artists, parents, carers and teachers,
That this difficult time has stopped us from advancing Deep Down Arts does not mean that the momentum that led us to Mérida has been lost.
The exhibition was a success; as you will have seen on our website the attendance was almost 19,000 visitors from all corners of Mexico, plus some from Canada, Australia, Germany and Singapore. People who never imagined knowing each other formed a community united by art and disability – which amply showed us all that it more than disability is a high capacity in the field of art.
Today, more than ever, we must maintain as a sign of hope the light we received from you, artists. There are many plans: certainly our next stage will be in Singapore, at the first opportunity that this is possible. There will be travelling exhibitions and we are counting that getting to know each other was not a single event. There is much research material, the publications of which will be made known to all of you.
Thanks to the digital avenue we will be able to keep in touch. We are preparing brief profiles of each and every one of the participants that we will publish on the website, and we have created the email email@example.com as a communication channel.
