The arts are an oracle, a mirror and a shaman. They tell us about the past, the present, and the future. They disrupt and heal. Tapped for good and for ill, the arts offer meaning, galvanize change and transform hearts and minds. They’re an economic engine. No wonder cutting arts funding, limiting access to the arts and deeming them “extra” or “only for some” are levers for oppression. Yet art is created, fiercely, everywhere. The arts are core to being human. They are a pathway to wellbeing for all people and communities and our country. This is why the Wellbeing Blueprint is specifically inclusive of the arts and understands the importance of artists and arts groups in moments of transition, uncertainty, pain and change. Join us to experience how justice pioneers are creating a new future through the arts. Link here for info & registration
