MISSION STATEMENT: THE ARTIST IN YOU!
What begins as a group of inspired, beautiful people, from all over the world, I hope to motivate into a GLOBAL MOVEMENT: “The Art of Inspiring Change”!
Where anyone in the world can meet, on-line, at any time to share their works, their missions, their creative endeavors of the day!
Where the ACTIVISTS in blue jeans meet the TUXEDOS and GOWNS from the RED Carpet to support CAUSES near and dear to their hearts!
Where new artists can be discovered! Where new solutions can be found!
ON-LINE AND LIVE EVENTS can be extended to a more global participation to support those who need our help the most!
MULTI MEDIA EVENTS being planned.
THE COLLABORATION BEGINS….
We are planning an ongoing series of multi-media events beginning April 1st, with the on-line DIG ART BRAZIL FOR CHILE, benefitting Habitat For Humanity Chile Relief Fund.
Next, we plan to host a LIVE, Multi-media event, and hope to create a conceptual prototype that will, then, be implemented in concert, in small towns to large cities, internationally via all of our talented, cause oriented members!
YOUR IDEAS, YOUR CAUSES, YOUR EVENTS are important !
We ENCOURAGE you to post your works, inspirations, events, links on the AIY wall. You may also share any ideas and recommendations with me, by sending me a message directly!
EVERYONE HAS AN ARTIST INSIDE!
In the words of Desmond Tutu, from his book “Made For Goodness”, these words reaffirmed my “vision”:
“We are endowed…with this gift of creativity. Anyone who has seen a dancer in motion or an artist at work, anyone who has enjoyed the skill of a good cook or watched a child build a sandcastle or make a mud pie, knows that human creativity is inherent.” In the words of Desmond Tutu, from his book “Made For Goodness”.
I wanted to take a moment to share these words with all of you, in tandem with a more personal story….
Many years ago, I participated in Forum 2000 during the UN Millennium Summit in New York. Standing in the reception hall, waiting for my friend and mentor from UNESCO, I saw this man with a LUMINOUS smile walking straight to me. He said
“You have such a beautiful light from within, it almost blinded me from across the room!” Then, he giggled. He threw his arms around me, and said “Tell me more about yourself!”
During that event my mission was all about MUSIC: how it heals, soothes, inspires, and how, by gathering musicians together for a cause, it can change the world!
Delighted, and, again giggling, he began to grab everyone he knew in proximity of where we were standing to introduce me.
That man was Desmond Tutu.
That moment was one of the best in my life.
You never know who “sees” you, and I have to say I just LOVE this man. With his ever positive energy, enthusiasm, and THE BEST GIGGLE ON THE PLANET, I encourage everyone to read his book.
Moreover, I wanted to share this story because all of you who are participating in this group should know that YOU ARE MADE FOR GOODNESS, and I applaud you, welcome you, to share all of that positive energy with each of us, as often as you choose to do so!
So, in sum, WHAT IS MY ULTIMATE GOAL FOR THE ARTIST IN YOU?
TO BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER!
TO BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER TO SHARE AND INSPIRE!
TO BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER FROM ALL OVER THE GLOBE, TO CREATE A FORMIDABLE, DIVERSE, POSITIVE ENERGY!
TO ENGAGE IN POSITIVE CHANGE whether it be in attendance to one of many LIVE events we create, or from the privacy of their own computer!
EVERY ONE OF US
EVERY ONE OF US
IS A WORK OF ART
WHEN PERCEIVED AS SO, IN THE EYES OF OUR BEHOLDERS
SHARE THAT LIGHT
Together, we build a better world, we help those who need our help, we inspire others to join us in a MOVEMENT, that is totally inclusive and we make new strides each day for better days, better lives for each person as we reach out and “touch” their hearts!
