Nesting in place

Dear Rabbit Box family,

When our board met remotely this week to discuss the next few months, we realized that the upcoming theme — Nesting — applies to all of us right now and others in our beloved community. We have faced the hard decision to cancel our upcoming April show. But we will not despair in this time of crisis – in fact, we have come up with a plan that we think will help bring us together in this time of separation.

We’ve decided to experiment with Rabbit Box in a new form until the risk of getting together subsides.

We want to capture this historic period of life in Athens and surrounding areas and stay connected while we all hunker down and stay safe. Perhaps you have a story about something new you’re trying or how you’re adjusting to work or schooling online or how you’re helping others during this time.

Our mission statement holds in the digital realm: Rabbit Box Storytelling provides a forum for the Athens area to hear and share stories in order to celebrate and strengthen our diverse community.

Soon we’ll be asking for 3-5 minute story submissions in any way you’d like to share with us – be it your audio recording, video or written stories. You can share photos and artwork, too, so that we can all chronicle our lives while we’re nesting to keep others and our families safe.

We’ll be getting back to you on Saturday the 29th at noon about how and where to submit. We just wanted to let you know we’re all in this together and that Rabbit Box will — like all of Athens and our nation — be stronger than ever before too long! So be on the lookout for our next update!

Stay safe!

Always,
The Rabbit Box Engineers
