It has the ability to enable and empower individuals and groups
who do not usually participate in 'art' projects.
I am thinking of the yarn-bombed tree and the re-cycled tulips outside of The Arts Village, Rotorua.
I am not so keen on art, such as public murals, purported to be by groups such as children or the disabled, but 'prettied up' to give a more professional, attractive finish.
Let's do more that brings joy and a smile to our communities, honours their effort and unique giftedness, and less that says 'you are not quite good enough'.
