Why We Need the Arts More than Ever

Don Bowyer • 08 April 2020 •

The Arts are a vital part of how humanity copes with crisis: we communicate human emotion through creative activity. There is something cathartic about the shared artistic experience that transcends all artificial boundaries, be they political, racial, or otherwise. Ultimately, we are all human.

Society needs the Arts. Human tragedy is made more bearable through the Arts.

How else can one express the inner conflict that will take place when a medical professional has one available ventilator and three critically ill patients? Or a family is unable to hold the hand of a dying loved one?

Whether it’s a concert, a film, a poem, a painting, or any other work of art, these are the acts that define us as human.

Fill the world with Art!
