11/12/12 Update: Art for Cures has moved. We are now located at http://artforcures.ning.com, which is our new community site. You will need to register in order to participate. We look forward to seeing you there! This list is being phased out. Thank you!
As a collective of creatives, we have a chance to do more for the global good than just swaps and artistic encouragement. There is also potential for art to create global change, one act of kindness at a time. It is to those creatives, globally, that we reach out.
We have all been touched by tragedies in one form or another throughout our lives. Diseases ravage those we love, those we care for, and we are caught feeling helpless verging on hopeless. It is those experiences that we should draw strength from and move out into the world armed with hope, compassion, understanding and encouragement for others who might be dealing with similar issues or who have loved ones who fight daily.
Every action, every inaction, sets off a ripple into the world around us. To think that what we do, say, and express does not affect others is an illusion. We are all connected and if one person can make a difference then a collective can create major change. It is with that intent that we've formed Art for Cures.
Think Globally. Act with Compassion.
If you are an artist and would like to participate you are more than welcome to join. If you are not an artist there is still a place for you as we need as much help supporting this project by spreading the word; please email us at artforcures(at)gmail(dot)com and I will add you to the support list. Either way, your involvement makes a huge difference!
If you are from the now closed Non_Cents group you are in the right place, welcome!
