I started volunteering at Abbey Arts because I’m interested in pursuing a career in art therapy. I believe that we need art to survive because art is communication. We use communication to express ourselves and without it, we cannot function as humans.
“I believe that we need art to survive because art is communication.”
Abbey Arts is a place where all arts are welcome and affordable to the public. It’s not only a great source of inspiration but it also provides many things such as the NEXT STAGE program I’m applying to which would give me a great opportunity to start my career as a live painter and affirm myself as an artist.
For the couple of times I volunteered for Abbey Arts, I felt not only extremely welcomed by the overall atmosphere but also surprised at the diversity of events. I hope to volunteer much more and be a part of this growing art community.
