words and art by w a l t e r w s m i t h

All I Ask Is That I Am Allowed To Have A Voice

The beauty of art in all its various disciplines is the formulation of ideas. At the core of those ideas is a social, historical, political, and creative construct that merges our identity with our life experience.

All I ask is that I am allowed to have a voice….

I have a voice ... I have hope ... I have you to listen

why do i have a voice

is it to liberate

illuminate

educate

or

bring together the gathering of

ideas

dreams

consciousness

do I dance to give voice

paint to give voice

act to give voice

react to give voice

how am i heard

listen

and tell me

for

your voice whispers to me….

Tell me what your voice means to you. How do you express and connect with the inner longing of your dreams; the ideas that keep you up at night; the need to share something, everything with everyone you meet?

This post is inspired by the voice of Bill T. Jones / Choreographer, Dancer and Artistic Director

Share your voice….

    • Just thinking about the creative process, and what we as artist are trying to express. And how important it is.
