Art is powerful. Creative expression is an imperative.
I saw the power of art in fostering personal well-being and building community when I started working with children with special needs in the UTSAH project. That experience has stayed with me. The recent projects have only confirmed that art – song, music, dance, images, films, photos – all forms of creative expression soothe and satisfy the human spirit. My artist friend’s reply to the question, “Why art?” is the one of the best I have heard, “Is that even a question?”
My community arts projects invite you to pause, reflect and share your story. Without a question. Because your story matters.
