For centuries people have told their stories through music, image and performance.
Using the art of storytelling through mediums such as poetry slams, music festivals, street art, community theatre and photography, the Sounds for Social Justice can be heard.
As a child, art both shaped and enforced my views on life. Sounds and images resonated with feelings of injustice, oppression and with it the stirring to rise up and overcome.
Art tells us about life, events we encounter during our lives,
all creatures in short, existence. http://www.ijssh.org/vol6/679-CH402.pdf
“Storytelling is the conveying of events in words, sound and/or images, often by improvisation or embellishment. Stories or narratives have been shared in every culture as a means of entertainment, education, cultural preservation and instilling moral values.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Storytelling
Whilst inequality is all around; the power and responsibility to think, feel and live discontent with the horror of injustice is in our hands. Further blog posts will highlight those that inspire change through their artistic genres.
