Why Art Is Important

I just saw the film Defiant Requiem on Netflix. It is a documentary about how the prisoners of the Nazi concentration camp Terezin continued to create art, music, dance, and theater despite the horrorific abuse they were suffering, and how this creative activity preserved their humanity. Survivors tell how when they were singing, they no longer were prisoners, at least for that moment. This is why art is important! This is why I will always be an artist and why I am dedicated to bringing the power of the art process to all people who are hurting.
