STUDIO 526 Transition 2.0 
A lot of you know that I had returned to the Studio for a few months part-time to help onboard new leadership. I’m very happy to say, Studio 526 now has two (already not so) new staff: Alice, the Arts Program Manager, and Josh, the Arts Program Specialist. 
I’m no longer at Studio 526, as of July 14th, but you can find me at Doodles Without Borders (or doodles beyond borders, as Silkiie calls it), and by emailing info@doodleswithoutborders.com .
On July 12th the new Arts Program Manager, staff, and artists threw me an amazing little almost-surprise goodbye party, and it was such an incredible, wonderful experience! Thank you all so so much!
For Studio 526 related questions please email Alice at ACorona@thepeopleconcern.org or Josh at Joshua.Castro@thepeopleconcern.org .

Quote of the month:
“Sovereignty is as much about artistic and physical connections to Ancestral homelands as it is about ideas of nationhood or boundaries on a map.” 
– Nanibaa Beck and Teresa Montoya, Dine/Navajo
