Making Arts Work

Artists have a great capacity to be of service to society, creating a culture that is vibrant and harmonized with the needs of the day and the goals of posterity. Making Arts Work celebrates the specific ways artists are responding to issues of social justice, peace-building, immigration, and urban development, while also highlighting how the arts can meaningfully advance us as individuals and as communities, providing us with the lives we want to live.
