Freedom Fighters: Art as Activism

The Earth is a work of art – a Masterpiece. She is the source of all life. She is our provider of bountiful beauty and sustenance. As capable, intelligent, and sentient beings it is our duty to protect The Earth.

The confirmation of Scott Pruitt to lead the Environmental Protection Agency is a travesty for Mother Earth and all life forms. We, as individuals and a collective community, have three critical choices that will determine the life or decline and eventual destruction of our planet:

1. Be afraid to think for ourselves and be a blind follower of the current American Federal Government.

2. Cover our eyes, look the other way, and remain silent in our protective bubbles.

3. Become Freedom Fighters. Be individuals who think for themselves and unite as concerned and educated communities that rise up and fight for what we believe in.

The choice is clear.

All you need is passion. When passion flows, the power imagination and creativity flourishes. Art is inspiring. Art unites humans together.

Art – music, film, visual art, theatre, cartoon, graphic design, illustration, graffiti art, stand-up comedy, poetry, dance, photography, street projection – is the most universal means of communication to reach the masses and spread our message.

Art is a riveting and engaging way we can communicate critical environmental and social issues, expose problems, educate, and help the collective public to care and become involved.

Now…get off the computer and CREATE! Create for the Greater Good. Create for The Earth.

PEACE is The Word!
