We do not always understand one another because the world is such a diverse place. We live in different geographical locations and speak different languages too. But if there is one language spoken by all regardless of race, culture, education, and status in life, it is obviously the arts. None of these factors matter in your appreciation for the arts.
We were all born with artistic sensibilities. The art gives us a sense of calm and balance - away from the chaos of modern living and the fast pace of modern life. But not everyone knows how to appreciate its value. Since not technically considered a human necessity, the art sector will cease to enjoy big funding from the U.S. government.
The future is not so bright for those in the arts and everyone else who will be affected by the budget cut. We feel for struggling artists who wants to make a name in this world and give back to the world through the art pieces they make.
More questions pop regarding the arts. How do brands work now with the arts in Trump’s America?
If you are clueless on what an SXSW is, it is an abbreviation for South by Southwest – a collaboration of inventive groups (from the music, theater, and the arts) that takes place in Austin, Texas each year.
The arts need more help that it can get today if brands can’t help them anymore because many are apparently in approval of Trump’s decision to reduce art funding.
We can only hope that the new president makes rational and fair decisions in the policies he makes and not just because he feels like it or not. The lives of billions of people rely on his good judgment and leadership. For now, all we can do is to wait and watch whatever unfolds on the big screen of life today in Trump’s era.
