It is my belief that art has a direct link to the heart. The universality of art, to express emotion and build on the human experience, suggests art itself has the potential to cut through the rhetoric of discrimination, isolation and othering  enforced  during times of war or any other form of crisis that forces people to flee from their homes, or to be feared based simply on difference.

“Art doesn’t give rise to anything in us that isn’t already there. It simply stirs our curious consciousness and sparks a fire that illuminates who we have always wanted to be.”
