Alatar’s Final Push will inspire you to dream a better world and show us what it looks like with your art!
“You don’t have to try to be a negative piss baby.”
“Healing and growing past the things that damaged us is incredibly hard.”
“I felt like something was behind me, whipping me.”
“The conditions of the world as they were before this outbreak – is that really what we want to get back to? Or can we dare to start dreaming of a better world?”
“If anything needs to die, it’s that veneer that we all put on, that perfectly curated self that we put on for the world.”
