Creative City is putting funds in the hands of artists. That matters. It matters who gets funding to create art and who has access to art. It matters who tells the stories of communities.
Hairpin has a deep connection to Project Bread and the Walk for Hunger. Our own Kristen and Brendan’s dad, Patrick Hughes, founded both over 50 years ago. He was an original: a world-changer, do-gooder and hell-raiser! Brendan was the keynote at the 2019 Walk for Hunger Kick-off. On behalf of the whole Hughes family, he thanked Project Bread for keeping Patrick's legacy alive. For their relentless commitment to not only feeding the line but shortening the line. Hunger, he knew, was not a failure of resources. It wasn’t a failure of infrastructure. It was a failure of imagination.
