Students, faculty and staff returning to school this fall want nothing more than to get back to the way things were, "but what used to be won't exist ever again," said Mark Richert, Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Coordinator for the Taos Municipal Schools District.

Richert, 54, instead wants to lean in to the upheaval brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, and use the opportunity to re-imagine life going forward. The move comes as many professionals across the nation reevaluate their relationships with the office, their careers and other existential concerns.

On Friday (Dec. 18) at 6:30 p.m., Twirl, A Play & Discovery Place, and Taos Center for the Arts will present an exploration of the topic with an online event called "Unmasking the Mask with Twirl's Amber Vasquez and Liana Bayles," featuring prerecorded performances and appearances that look at the rich creativity, history, culture and emotional significance of mask-making and wearing.

Flash forward to late last year when, for only the second instance in its history, the Harwood once again issued the same call.
