Still House Interview
When we set out to start POST NEW, we set a pretty clear frame work. We wanted to document gamechangers or influential movements. That didn't mean they had to be current, we referred to the term newness as something that described change in any time or era. The Still House is an emerging arts organization that is artist run; the perfect place to incubate the next generation of gamechangers.
