Art transcends cultural, social, and economic boundaries and opens up a space for discussion and communication. Art can be simple a child’s drawing or complex as some famous paintings in display at the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam. It certainly comes in many forms. Whether it is drawn, painted, sung, danced or acted out, art is human expression at the most basic level.
The Involved Stage is a performing arts project that aims to identify and address social issues by aesthetic means. Our class decided to take part in it because it fits our view of how art should be experienced: through interaction with the community. This blog aims to catalog the phases and progress of this Involved Stage project.
