Ten days after President Donald Trump’s inauguration a group of Seattle-area artists and arts supporters came together to share experiences and build community. KUOW set aside a space for them to record personal messages. Their reflections express the conflict of the moment, marked by fear and hope, uncertainty and renewed determination.

"The Great Work Begins" event was hosted by KUOW and the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture on January 30th at The Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute.
