Where does creativity meet social engagement, whether it is about a dishonest President, climate change, immigrant and prisoner rights, or failure of democratic systems to protect the most vulnerable and corporations too big to fail? Is now the time for artists and change makers to join in a joyful expression of frustration and hope? Can we help connect a community of creative and inspired leaders? Can we make music, theater, and visual art for the grassroots… for the street and community spaces?
Those are some of the questions that are expected to emerge at the first Community Art-Build gathering to take place at the Commons @ BALE in South Royalton on Thursday, March 2 from 2-4 p.m. Anyone interested in exploring and acting through art and creativity in these troubling times is welcome to join in.
