A statement from Gabriella: 

"I wrote this piece because, during the time of Covid, my travels have come to a halt. I think the people of the world need to keep discovering each other and the places where they live, the foods that they eat and the languages that they speak. 

Much appreciation to my friends in Japan, particularly Michiko and the late Takeshi, whose open hearts and kindness have been a gift."



Created during a time of quarantine in the global Coronavirus pandemic, A Moment Of Your Time’s mission is to provide a space for expression, collaboration, community and solidarity. In this time of isolation, we may have to be apart but let’s create together. 

Concept by Jenny Curtis
