Hello and welcome to the Heart2Art Project. My team and I have worked hard to make this happen and we are incredibly happy that our project is finally on it's feet. The reason I created Heart2Art was to give my community and generation an accessible platform to be both exposed to and to create art that makes statements on troubling issues.
I have always identified as a filmmaker, artist, and writer. As I grew and matured, I began to look at art as less of a hobby and more of a way to better understand the world and society that I lived in. I think that art is the most universal way to make statements, communicate to one's emotions, and to spread ideas, and this can be illustrated in some of the most influential pieces of music, art, and film. Considering how impactful art can be, it only made sense that it would be the most engaging and meaningful way to educate others on pressing issues and to influence our generation into becoming a more open and accepting group of individuals.
As our project continues to grow and expand, my only hope is that we make an impact on as many teens as we can. Our generation is currently the most impressionable and the most influential group of people on the planet today, so it is up to us to make a change in the world we see around us. Whether you are an artist, an activist, or someone in between, we all have the power to fight for what we believe in and to impact society. I encourage the other teens in my community to join us as we start our journey to a more empowered, educated, and open future.
