What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Polaris Prize-winner Jeremy Dutcher is a classically trained operatic tenor and composer who flawlessly integrates his Wolastoq First Nation roots into the music he creates, blending distinct musical aesthetics that shape-shift between classical, traditional, and pop to form something entirely new with roots in sounds that are over a century old. Dutcher’s debut release, Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa, involved the rearrangement of early 1900s wax cylinder field recordings from his community. “Many of the songs were lost because our musical tradition was suppressed by the Canadian government. I'm doing this work as there's only about a hundred Wolastoqey speakers left. It's crucial that we're using our language because, if you lose the language, you're losing an entire distinct way of experiencing the world.”

This National Sawdust performance presents Dutcher, supported by his band, showcasing songs from Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa and a selection of previously unheard work from his forthcoming sophomore album, produced by the renowned Canadian singer-songwriter Owen Pallett.

Performer, composer, activist, musicologist – these roles are all infused into Jeremy Dutcher’s art and way of life. His music, too, transcends boundaries: unapologetically playful in its incorporation of classical influences, full of reverence for the traditional songs of the Tobique First Nation in New Brunswick, and teeming with the urgency of modern-day struggles of resistance.
