After traveling around the world and witnessing an overwhelming amount of discrimination, intolerance, and bigotry — I felt I needed to make a statement.
I started ArtForFreedom.com in September 2013 to give artists everywhere a platform to define what freedom means to them and to allow them to express their right for freedom of expression.
Now I am asking you — the BuzzFeed community — to share with me and others your artistic expression of freedom. This can be in the form of photography, video, dance, poetry, etc. I will be going through those entries directly on April 14 at 7 p.m. and giving you my input and encouragement to let your voice be heard LOUDLY.
An artist has the responsibility to not only reflect society, but to shape it.
If you need any inspiration, I made you a BuzzFeed-worthy list of some of the many freedom fighters who have guided me along the way with their actions as well as their art.
Are you with me? Then submit below and I will see you on April 14.
- The Women's March on Washington was one of the largest protests in the city's history.
- Trump's spokesman held a press conference to blame grass coverings for "minimizing" the crowd at the inauguration 🤔
- Members of the national security community reacted with shock after Trump attacked his critics while giving a speech at CIA headquarters.
