Art nurtures creativity, innovation and cultural diversity for all peoples across the globe and plays an important role in sharing knowledge and encouraging curiosity and dialogue. These are qualities that art has always had, and will always have if we continue to support environments where artists and artistic freedom are promoted and protected. In this way, furthering the development of art also furthers our means to achieve a free and peaceful world. During these stressful times, art becomes even more important. With days hunkered down the ability to create and produce art may take on a different form, indicative of the times. Creating under stress or change can often lead to interesting artistic accomplishment. So, let’s truly celebrate art and creativity as the giant and collective heart of our communities and world.
