Art & activism
Art and activism,
it’s a symbiotic relationship,
As humanity faces pressing challenges such as a changing climate and social injustice, in my opinion in art we have a responsibility to shed light on these issues and inspire action.
By harnessing the expressive power of art, individuals and communities can challenge the status quo, provoke dialogue, and ignite the collective consciousness necessary for meaningful change.
