The video below provides a first-person narrative of a
young couple's passion for the arts as they transform their
community from an 'arts' desert to an 'arts' showcase
providing a venue for activist musicians to find audiences
they might never otherwise connect with. Please watch
the video called Building Community through the
arts which demonstrates how important every single
individual can be in building a deep sense of community.
In your initial post, please address the following:
Why might musicians use their music to raise awareness
and consciousness about different social issues? In your
response please use at least one example (from the video,
from your own community or from a different resource) in
order to illustrate your points.
