Sarah founded artist collective Link-Link Club at the start of 2014. Link-Link Club's mission is to recognize the gray zone where people's professional interests, hobbies, and creative practices overlap as a spark for collaboration and dialogue.
Link-Link Club members include musicians, designers, architects, culinary artists, video artists and visual artists. Projects range from a supper club lecture series to internal collaboration to collaboration with community developers, builders, business owners, and youth. -- w e b s i t e --

Sarah began "Come Say Hey" in 2013 as a touring roadside stand culling words of advice from various populations in the South and on the East Coast. The piece has developed in the past two years to span mediums (from print to video, etc.), include collaborations with other artists, and to add to a growing library of advice and stories from participants. The latest iteration will be hosted in the Brooklyn Bridge Park in Fall 2015 and will include a multimedia installation and collaboration to be shown at the 99 Plymouth Street space.
Conarro designed, organized events, coordinated with performers, and conducted the execution of a large scale piece in collaboration with the public radio station KXLL/Excellent Radio in Juneau, Alaska. Conarro curated a three part project by carefully choosing the layout, parts of the events, and tangible materials in order to highlight inclusion and attractiveness to anyone and parallel the inclusive nature of public radio itself.
-THE EXPERIMENTAL VIDEO MAP PROJECT -
In this project, Conarro explores her interest in examining multiple people’s perspectives of the same place as they simultaneously create a cohesive large-scale collaboration. Conarro developed this large scale project on a simple question “What is one important place to you?” She collects the responses and juxtaposes them through video and point-plotting exhibiting the contrast of overlapping versus disparate responses.
Two iterations of the project were funded by the Alaska State Council on the Arts and took place in Gastineau Elementary and DZ Middle School in Juneau, Alaska.
