Staying Sane During A Pandemic

At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Helena was asked to curate a series of shows for the Nuyorican Poets Cafe for their  free online Zoom series.

Initially hesitant, due to her status as an essential worker, Helena realized what she was missing most during these unprecedented times was performing on stage, hosting and finding ways to contribute to the world using her art.


Helena curated a total of six shows, including #EssentialWorkers, and  attributes her involvement with them as keeping her "sane" while working on the front lines.
