Playing With Colors and Words to Support ASAN

Participant: Nicola Morris

Mission: I plan to do a watercolor sketch each day and write a poem.

March Arts Marathon is a fundraiser for Asylum Seekers Assistance Network (ASAN), a project of CVRAN. The work of ASAN is to get asylum seekers out of detention and resettled in Central Vermont. We are already supporting a family of four and plan to take in other asylum seekers this year. Our goal is to raise $15,000 for legal bonds, living expenses, and lawyers’ fees. March Arts Marathon is a community effort: Every day in March, poets and writers and artists and photographers will each send a piece of work to friends and family. And friends and family will donate to support this work. Together we will be helping to welcome new Americans who in turn will add immeasurably to our own communities. Each day I plan to both write a draft of a poem and to sketch with watercolors. Sponsors could choose to receive a watercolor or a poem, (or both) and I’ll e mail pictures and poems every day. Thank you so much for supporting the very good work of ASAN and for supporting me. It will be a significant stretch for me to see if I can both write and paint every day, and I’m looking forward to the challenge, to the Marathon!
