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




bring together the gathering of




do I dance to give voice

paint to give voice

act to give voice

react to give voice

how am i heard


and tell me


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.
