Making Art New York, Alyssa Monks, Brooklyn, New York
"We need to feel like we belong to this experience, we need to know our place, we need to know where we fit. We need to feel that we're accepted for who we are. So the goal you may think is to, get a show, get press or to make money or to have fame. But it's not, the thing we all really want is to feel connected."
