"Speak Truth to Power" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward
Now more than ever it's time for artists to speak truth to power.
By artists I mean everybody!
I like Toni Morrison's words:
"In times of dread, artists must never choose to remain silent."
Artists are a danger to power. Artists threaten authority.
I'm talking about painters, drawers, cartoonists, writers, poets, speakers, musicians, journalists, bloggers, prayers, conservationists, activists, potters, gardeners, jewelers, dancers, bakers, and pizza makers. Everyone!
We are artists if we express ourselves.
When we raise our voices to make the world a better place, then we are creators of new realities.
Speak truth to power.
