Using art and music as a vehicle for change. "In a time characterised by global instability, turmoil and protest, it's apparent that the world is in dire need of values, people and work that will bind us together rather than pull as apart. Although our race, class, cultural background and perspectives may be different, there are always things that can bring together the seemingly dissimilar. This is the function of art. When playing to its highest self, art is never for one group of people, but can connect to many groups. This is simply because great art doesn't discriminate in who it attracts. It can connect with a child in Brooklyn, a man in Brixton and a woman in Bamako. ‘Give Me a Sign’ merges two powerful mediums (the visual arts and music), with a singular purpose - fostering a spirit of unity. Our routes to unity may vary, but most agree that unity is the ideal outcome. I hope this work by Amar and myself can be a small step in a journey that will take much time and labour, however if each of us take a small step in encouraging unity, the journey will be shorter and easier than we once believed" - Pauli Lovejoy Artwork by: Amar Stewart
