What if music was more than art? Could albums and musicians work together to promote the issues of the world and fund the volunteer work?
What if music was more than a pass-time? What if albums lead to something bigger? Music connects people around the world and proves that politics will never separate us completely. War and poverty and corruption don't stand a chance when the people know and fight for what's real. Music is a chance to unite and address the world's faults. Anybody can create art and spend money for objects; why not for the sake of our people? The idea is that we can create a non-profit organization that can put together artist's works in order to raise awareness about the water crisis, the aids crisis, the favela crisis, the human rights crisis. To build a nonprofit organization to fund volunteer opportunities around the world. The point is not that our music alone would attract people or donations to help, but perhaps it could grow and tap into the fan base of many other music groups both local and more widely known and create some momentum for the communities that need it. What do you think of the idea of using albums and music as more than a profit-based endeavor, in order to stimulate and encourage social change?
Honestly I think creativity can be put to use towards promoting and raising funds for social change by every human in every way, not only through music. Creativity is our gift, and basically the whole point of this conversation is the idea that we can create things in our minds not for ourselves or our images but for our people as a whole. A single song can be created from nothing in our mind and put out into the world by the right people to create a lot of change.
