WHY ART?

We have over 120 awareness artists from 43 countries presently...we look forward to introducing them to you as they join the gallery...

One of the greatest happenings today, throughout the world is that we often feel removed or unaffected by the dilemnas or circumstances of others--be it in our neighborhoods, towns, cities, provinces, territorites, countries or continents--that we reside in. Global issues like climate change, disease, hunger--sometimes these us unaffected; even when we could easily do something to help locally, domestically, internationally and/or globally. Perhaps We are not driven to action because we do not feel strongly enough that WE are part of a global community, part of a larger WE.

Giving people access to data, research, statistics in order to create awareness and hopefully engage them--most often leaves them feeling overwhelmed and disconnected, not empowered or poised for action. This is where ART can make a difference. Art does not show people what to do, yet it is engaging. ART connects you to your senses, body, your culture, your emotions and mind. ART makes people feel. When one "feels" perhaps...there is then opportunity to spur thinking, engagement, and even action--perhaps, even action within and with YOUR community.

Most of us know the feeling of being moved by a work of art; whether it is a song, a play, a dance, a poem, a novel, a painting, or a spatio-temporal experiment or the artistry of a beautiful flower. When we are touched, we are moved; we are transported to a new place that is, nevertheless, strongly rooted in a physical experience, in our bodies. We become aware of a feeling that may not be unfamiliar to us -- but that which we have longed for. This transformative experience is what art is constantly seeking--the PARTNERSHIP that exists between the viewer or experience-er and the ART "itself".

Engaging with art is not simply a solitary event. Arts and culture communities throughout the world initiate and create opportunities that represent the uniqueness of the medium; in order to engage society and enable people to come together to share an experience -- especially if they see the world in radically different ways. The fundamental aspect that links art or allows art to act a a "bridge", is not that we agree about the experience that we share, but that we consider it worthwhile in sharing that experience at all. In art and other forms of cultural expression, disagreement is accepted and embraced as an essential ingredient. In this sense, the community created by arts and culture is potentially a great source of inspiration for politicians and activists who work to transcend the polarising populism and stigmatisation of other people, positions, and worldviews that is so endemic in public discourse today.

Art also encourages us to cherish intuition, uncertainty, and creativity and to search constantly for new ideas; artists aim to break rules and find unorthodox ways of approaching contemporary issues. Art has no boundaries.
