What did the audience write down?
"Every song, every story, every word of hope leads us all down a path of discovery to a brighter future.” ~ Scott Lopez
“We are not individuals but a collection of artists painting our own dreams from the dreaming of soul consciousness” ~ Kevin Rack
“When you feel down pick up an instrument, start a monologue or start a protest. Don’t let them see your tears. Let them see you ‘express’ those tears!” ~ Rudy Bilani
“If a tree could riot, what would it look like? Our privilege, our curse has us speechless too. How to build a loving riot…” ~ Lisa Byleveld
“I wish that our leaders globally would appreciate the power of art to heal, educate and change the world.” ~ Naomi Doyle
“Listen to Indigenous knowledge to care for our planet.” ~ Lynn Davis
“I think not enough people stop to think of all the homeless people on the streets. We may pass them everyday during our busy lives and drop a couple of coins. But I think we should stop and talk to them. Because everyone has a story.” ~ Olivia Pek
“Everybody has a song to sing, so sing!” ~ Patrick Hayes
