Art is imagination. Art says anything is possible. That anyone can say, do and be anything they want. We are all born with an infinite imagination so why should the arts be limited to only those who can afford it? The arts should not be a commodity, they are an essential human response to the world and who we are within it. To invest in the arts is to invest in our true selves. The arts show us a way forward. Our future belongs to those with the imagination to see beyond the present. By funding the arts lets give the gift of infinite possibility to our children. We must invest in hope. We must invest in each other. We must invest in imagination.
