Episode 12: Art & Activism. Should We Use Our Art to Affect Political And Social Climate

A bit of a heavy topic for today. This topic however is very relevant for artists, as we are the people who are called upon to comment on Social and Political Climates, to use our art and platform to "help" the cause and to be the front line for positive change. Artists are held to higher standards of morality. Off comments and non-mainstream opinions are held against our art. It is difficult for artists to make a mistake, change their minds or have any unsavoury opinion without having our careers jeopardized. 

In this episode, I will share my own very subjective thoughts and opinions on the matter. I am opening up on how certain current events affected my way of thinking and where I chose to stand as an artist.
