Eight years ago, students at a U.S high school wrote to their favorite authors asking them to visit. Kurt Vonnegut was the only one who responded, writing this beautiful and humorous letter:
Kurt Vonnegut’s humanity and sharp wit inspired us in the founding of Arts Emergency. Our alternative old boy network was inspired by a radical idea put forward in his semi-autobiographical and wonderfully strange sci-fi novella ‘Slapstick, or Lonesome No More!’ which explored loneliness on an individual and social scale.
Join the network HERE if you want to pass on your privilege and give a leg up to those coming through behind us in the arts, media and academia!
