To deny one’s identity is to deny a person’s needs.
What makes a well-known public figure choose to use their creative/artistic platform to support such important causes? It must be in the core of the individual. It must stem from an acquired belief in placing value to people and topics traditionally undervalued. ‘Nahko and Medicine for the People’ are an inspiring example of what can be done by those in the limelight.
The seemingly implosive start of what will be a culturally and morally difficult time will call for creative individuals to embrace what we love and to share that passion with others. Now is the time to support (and continue supporting) contemporary artists and to expose ourselves to different perspectives and views of the world.
