Solidarity is essential: yes I can have one idea as an individual, but when I join that together with other folks we can build something massive and incredible.
For me, it was the ability to really connect and think critically about the world around us. And not telling people what to think, but encouraging us to question.
Not just what do we stand against, but what do we stand for? How do we express that through the arts, how do we start to manifest that through culture, through the stories that we tell?
That started as an idea and shaping an opportunity, seeing an opportunity outside all of the 'no's' or the boxes that people wanted to fit me in and say 'that's not for you.'
There's some kind of gravity to the music that allowed us to feel more interconnected.
Lovework is the most ideal work: that work that, yes it can be hard, but it also feeds our soul.
