Art = healthy communities?
In my opinion, art is a form of expression that is unique to you only. If you create an art piece that reflects you, it is no-one but you that can discredit it.
Today, we went to the truck depot. The truck depot had a sense of community that I found overwhelming, and that made me overlook the superficial image of dirt and labour. Art for these people is a way of life. Whilst I’m sure they love their work, it is work for them, and artistic expression is part of the job.
For me, art is part creation, part post creation. There was satisfaction in the work done, and I feel that a job with an artistic input and output is far more satisfying than one with neither.
