Art is a fantastic tool through which to express our activist spirits. Art can transport us from the mundane to the sublime and from the ordinary to the fantastic like nothing else. Our creativity is our personal force for creation. We can breathe life into concepts and content into form. Art gives us the vehicle that lets us raise the causes we are passionate about above the fray and allows us to embrace them, understand them, and re-imagine them. I see no split between art and activism.
