Art is not just about catharsis, self-expression, and relaying powerful messages through symbolism – it also entails our imagination to mold art in its most natural form. By actively engaging with each other and harmonizing with the earth, we can cultivate a better path for future generations.
The Zeitgeist Media Festival is an annual event that bridges art and activism together in order to inspire and unify alternative communities. Being both an artist and activist myself, it was an honor to relay my political beliefs and artistic philosophy to such an open, energetic crowd.

Art appreciation and recognizing the common language that it speaks is
brilliantly expounded upon by Abby and I enjoyed the talk very much. Thank-you Abby
