The creative collaboration between Balaclava.Q and Inspirational, between Stiofan O'Ceallaigh and John Hopper, is proof that something fundamental is happening within the art community. Artists are coming together, forming partnerships, small groups, platforms. Mutually complementary, cooperative, and supportive relationships are being formed, conversations started, skills shared. There is a buzz in the community, and the buzz revolves around connection. This is happening on a planetary scale with artists now making those connections not only locally, but between continents. For the first time, the art community has a chance to have a full voice in the world, and that chance should not be missed.
