“Abri” means shelter or refuge. Given the challenges that we face in the world as humans seemingly unable to get along with each other, we often have to turn to art and culture to express and remind us of our humanity. We hope that Abri will provide you with shelter and refuge within the world of art and culture.
We will cover music, art, literature, independent film, and the performing arts. You can access reviews, commentaries, and feature stories by clicking on any of the tabs.
