Artists and social activism have a long history.
Wherever there are social or cultural causes, you will find visual artists, musicians, writers, photographers and orators.
What is it that draws the artist to activism?
Perhaps it is the opportunity to express unadulterated belief or to unmask and humanize what has been shrouded; to stand with those who have been forsaken.
Whatever the reason, if you’re an artist, now is not a season to shrink back from standing against the dark things of this world that steal life and freedom from others.
Perhaps your voice against injustice has been muffled due to being overwhelmed with your own economic obligations BUT there is always good in giving yourself to those who can not speak or act for themselves.
Wake up, the world needs you in it, fighting for those who can not lift their eyes to see the light of day.
