"What is art?"

It can be discouraging being an artist. With the world always reminding you how hard it is to make it. How you are just like all the others trying to follow their passion and only wasting time. We are encouraged to take our imagination and to put it in the box on the shelf, because ‘as adults we don’t have time for that.’ Too many dreams have been smothered before they ever had a chance to become a reality, which is why we are here to give you a pep talk. Because we believe that there is nothing more that our culture so desperately needs right now than artists. We’re experiencing some tough times, but who hasn’t? What we’ll be rembered for, as a generation, is how we dealt with the problems we face today. It's not too late to fix our mistakes, we just need to wake up. We need art and to remind us that there are still things in life worth fighting for. We need artist to help bridge that gap between cultures and remind us that we’re all brothers and sisters in it together. It’s the artists that keeps our cultures thriving and it is the artists that can inspire us to make a difference. So next time somebody tells you that making art is a waste of time, look them in the eye and tell them to get loose.  - LG
