Circus School

Anastasia Waly, 2021.

In this digital collage I aim to address issues surrounding education while moving through a global pandemic. Our world is under crisis, education policy makers are trying to make decisions based on the needs of economic stability while seemingly placing the health and wellness of those in the actual schools aside. While people in schools try to move through their days with some semblances of normalcy, many educators are made to feel like circus performers; acting out near impossible tasks to keep the education complex running.

I’m just going to sail away awhile
And try to make sense of the joy
And the pain
Of being together
But apart.
To figure out this new way of being
And wait to see
Where we all end up.
