Welcome to the Art Comes First Global Village!

We have reached the end of our Hopenclass x FutureLearn journey together and arrived at the beginning of the next stage of our relationship as potential mutual followers, clients, collaborators. We have created this new expansive community together. The insights and the work of our collective falls somewhere between these two sayings:

“It takes a village to raise a child.” – an African proverb “The creative adult is the child who survived.” – Ursula K. Le Guin

It is our hope that you and your brand can find a way to contribute to making sure more and more people get to survive and thrive thanks to (y)our products, services, care, and music! Thank you for the time you have invested in this course. We look forward to our paths crossing again soon!
