From the moment I could babble sounds in a rhythmic way, wobble and bounce my body to a beat, or grasp a crayon, the arts have always been my power. It is the tool I use to understand myself and the world, and It’s how develop and express that understanding. As I travel the world experiencing the art of people in disparate environments and situations, it becomes clear that the arts are not only a universal language that provides a platform for communication, but a tool to help us to connect. In a world that is growing smaller by the day, this becomes even more important. This is just one of the reasons why Art is Power.
