Sustaining Notes in the Time of Coronavirus

To Students, Faculty, and Staff:

FUSION Magazine: Global Art, Words, and Music, Berklee’s online global arts magazine, is seeking nonfiction narratives, photography, videos, and music born of these unprecedented and troubling times. Send us work created around your response to the pandemic—all it has taken, created, and changed. How has this crisis affected your life, your perspective, your relationships, your notions of what it is to be alive, to be human—to be? Have you been able to tap into your creativity and move from inward to outward thinking, from isolation to community?
