The role of the creative, whether, artist, performer, or musician, is to give form to what is unseen, not perceived by the wider public. These visionaries are the antidote to fundamentalism. Visionaries are those who express the future, set the goals, or give the warnings to society.
Think over how much “artists” have influenced the modern world we live in now. It is the artists / dreamers who give us the wild and fantastic ideas we read as stories or view as films. These in turn inspire others to make these dreams and visions a reality.
Art also has a role in healing, in understanding our traumas, through creative expression.
Through art, we can find meaning and understanding of our life experiences.
