hr>“We want to build a community between every artist that exists, basically. So that every artist is synonymous with Home For Waifs And Strays and that everyone is part of it and everyone knows about it […] that’d be great but we’re not sure what we’ll see, it might be this, might be that; it might be work that’s in progress, it might be finished work, might be re-created work from the 60’s, and that’s kind of what I want HFWAS to be. I want it to basically be the bit that doesn’t exist, and the bit that needs to exist in order to create the community that we need as artists. ” – Aleks
