I've been thinking lately. Those of us in the creative community often use our talents for personal gain and creative expression. These are both good things. But we don't think always think about the implications of our creations. Are we perpetuating harmful systems of manufacturing through our creations? Do we seek to further the common good?
As I've come to embrace and hone my creative spirit, I've been thinking a lot about how I can use this creativity in light of the changes I want to see in the world. I love social change and healing. It brings life where there was none, like water to a parched plant. But there are different gifts and ways to do this.
My goal in starting this blog is to explore this intersection of creativity and social justice. I want to know my artistic heart better and use my gifts to make the world a better place, and be accountable to my impact on this world. I'd love it if you joined me on that journey.
