In your opinion, why does art matter?

The arts matter because they can be used as an interdisciplinary tool to connect with a culturally diverse world and create social change.

What LP value do you most relate to and why?

The LP’s value to be propelled with love as a radical and essential act of power resonates with me, especially when it is needed most right now as New York City heals from the Covid-19 pandemic.
