Off the Hook Arts’ Alcove is an online forum to provide a space for artists to come together during this uncertain time. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected essentially all aspects of life; however, the arts community is feeling the loss and grief of what was once “normal.” Artists can no longer use their platform to bring groups of people together physically, but here at OtHA we aren’t going to let that stop us.
The Arts’ Alcove recognizes artists of any kind – musicians, writers, actors, etc. – to submit their work virtually. Once work is uploaded to our website, a support button will allow viewers to enjoy the works and make a donation that benefits both the artist, and at their discretion, OtHA. Essentially, the Arts’ Alcove plays the role of an online gallery as a platform for artists to exhibit their creativity during these uncertain times, people to enjoy and support their favorite artists, and discover new artists to love.
“The Arts’ Alcove is a creative, clever, kind, collaborative, constructive idea, and I hope our audiences enjoy it. Artists and art lovers need to support each other right now, and the Arts’ Alcove is a perfect way to lead. Thank you!”
This week on the Arts Alcove Podcast, we’re doing something a little different in honor of a very exciting change coming soon to the Alcove. Starting this spring, we will be featuring students from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music alongside our other incredible Alcove Artists. Here to talk about those students, the San Francisco Conservatory, and his personal journey and guiding principles is SFCM’s president David Stull with Off the Hook Arts’ Director Jephta Bernstein.
They discuss curiosity as an essential trait, teaching humanity equal to technique as part of conservatory curriculum, and Stull’s exciting plans for the future of Opus 3 as a layered force for good in the world of music.
As Stull would say “being curious is key”, so if you’re curious as to what those plans might be, tune in on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, or wherever you listen to podcasts.
