To my artist friends,
Fight this chaos with hope and beauty. Without hope and beauty, what are we fighting for?
Many are predicting doom and suffering. But I want to remind you that is not us artists. It is our job, even more, it is our calling to be hopeful. We are the reminders of what mankind can be.We are the reminders that the world has beauty. In this time of uncertainty, we must remind ourselves of our calling. Show those who are losing hope possibility. Remind those that see only sickness and destruction of the beauty in our world.
I must admit that as I write this, I hear the snakes in my mind throwing up negative platitudes: “that’s wishful thinking, we are in trouble”, “your head is in the clouds”, “your are not seeing the reality of our situation”, and “great, another touchy feely immature view from an artistic hippy type!” Wrong. We as artists live in the real reality. Are we immature with our heads in the clouds? I think not. We have chosen this artistic/ creative life and endured hardship after hardship: continual rejection, continual insecurity, continual suffering. And yet we continue. We have soldiered on bringing the beauty to the world and hope for the future. We need to bring that beauty and hope to everyone now.
So I remind us of our artistic calling: fight this chaos with hope and beauty. For without hope and beauty, what are we fighting for?
Sincerely and with hope,
Show Director - CCM Events
