“I think art is important because it brings people together and expresses things that words can’t always do. It questions, opens our minds, creates empathy and allows us to connect with ourselves and others.”
"Art is the outlet that allows us to express all of our feelings, vulnerabilities and aspirations in a beautiful way. It connects us in a shared experience, in discussion and often in recognizing a part of ourselves in another's work of art."
"I believe art connects people because it is the purest form of emotion materialized. Art allows us to be free and honest; to speak our truth and find our tribe. The one thing I can tell you: art is never wrong and always heals."
"Artists are intuitive and passionate about expressing how they are feeling about the world. Art is communication; it allows people from different cultures to communicate with each other via stories, images and sounds, and this creates a community."
Senior Video Producer - San Francisco Symphony (California, U.S.A.)
"Art gives us a means to express the contents of our hearts and souls. When I see my feelings and experiences reflected in the work of another it reminds me that I'm not alone, that while our circumstances may be different we are all the same inside."
"Art connects people because art is life! Art is able to express ones inner thoughts and reflect back to us our humanity: the good, the bad, and the inspiring. Especially now, during this world wide pandemic lockdown, people are turning more than ever to all art forms to find deep connection and meaning in their lives and realizing that they are not just a cog in the economic machine."
