Live Love Art… Vive l'amour de l'art…

the very first remnants that we have of humans interaction with the planet is a little flute made of the bones of a vulture that was found in a cave in southern Germany 3,000 years old and it's a flute that is that it's not a knife for hunting or for cutting food or it's not a fire flint it's a flute art is something which is so cool which is so entrenched in human nature that we do not exist outside of it it's something so intangible as to say if you were to ask me what is the value of breathing it's really tough to pin down it's just it's vital McCown pose a question papillary temper-tantrum Swan Medusa imagining but we enjoyed what we saw the Sonia art permeates our lives in ways that people are unaware of you know they wake up in the morning they're listening to the radio they're listening to music they're they're reading a novel it's an essential part of anyone's life it cuts all barriers there's a language there that can be unspoken valastro-style yeah night poor hey – hoo-hoo i opponent curiosity it brings us back to who we are as a people it's beyond race it's beyond technical style or genres that we use it's about who we are as we exist in this world whatever form it takes it it obviously is something that human beings need to do and then they need to share it I love to be in that seat when the lights come down and you're transported into another world Calvin exposes vos a new Donna Schatz the Canadian event perspective person equals out to a big a defeat it's those moments when you encounter a great work of art whether it's in a gallery whether it's in a theatre whether it's listening to it on a recording that suddenly that frenetic activity suddenly stops and you're suspended I'm sure you've felt it those moments that you suddenly feel suspended it grabs you by the heartstrings and it makes you feel extremely broken apart and also completely whole at the same moment art is very unexpected and I think that's the point of it the arts make us a stop they make us turn any word it makes us more intensely human shucks problemo be a check hell cashews a television Paradiso de la chanson Kefauver see equity subtler than you see click on stay the arts is very much linked for me to caring for humanity it's the way we understand how other people think if we didn't have arts and culture it would be very very difficult to sort of make sense of our situation why are we here what are we doing you know and understanding each other makes you leave all your troubles behind it makes you leave the everyday world behind and just become involved in that small particular world for that small amount of time of all the species on this planet we are the only ones that can express ourselves so accurately and provocatively through the things that we create whether it be film or theater or music or dance these are all ways in which we tap into who we are as human beings it just makes me happy I love arts I deeply believe in supporting the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council is is a crucial part of supporting the ecosystem of the Arts in in Ontario the Ontario Arts Council is its light its nest it's that you know there's no word for how important it actually is from an organizational perspective the Ontario Arts Council gives us an opportunity to take some risks and to truly invest in that upcoming emerging film artists when you get that endorsement it means as much as the money believe me because you get all excited and say somebody sees what I'm trying to do here nothing could compare to that feeling it just felt like I was doing the right thing I'd like to say Yahweh which means thank you to the anterior Arts Council for supporting my work and supporting other artists to fulfill their dreams and congratulations on 50 years well it would be an honor to say congratulations for making 50 years and I look forward to being with the Ontario Arts Council for another 50 and in the journey to realise that the arts is an agency for change I want to say congratulations to the Ontario Arts Council and thank you for recognizing the importance of the Arts and of art in all of our lives when bond fight just wait okay because a lot of you are notes I gotta be pious

  1. This video made me feel the way art makes me feel – good! Well done Gloria Kim and thanks to the OAC for all that you do for
    artists and the arts community. Congratulations on 50 years.

  2. Happy Anniversary & much love to the OAC & everyone there. Wonderful to know this support has been going on for 50 years. As a former recipient, I can vouch for the fact that it is INVALUABLE to us as artists. (Jude Norris)

  3. Art begins with resistance – at the point where resistance is overcome. No human masterpiece has ever been created without great labor.
    Andre Gide
    What strikes me is the fact that in our society, art has become something which is related only to objects and not to individuals, or to life. Art is is specialized or which is done by experts who are artists. But couldn't everyone's life become a work of art? Why should the lamp or the house be an art object, but not our life?” ― Michel Foucault

  4. Every single human being has creative ability… sadly many are 'broken' and do not see the beauty in their own work, their own selves. Gratefully, through ART, and the ARTS, we can heal and become the beautiful ARTISTS we are ALL meant to be 🙂

  5. As a member of the OAC board (1980-86) I celebrate this video tribute on the occasion of the 50th anniversary. The work of the OAC will continue to be an important part of the life and spirit of Ontario.

  6. "All the essential ingredients of meaning are given, but meaning is not given, meaning has to be created by you. You have to be a creator of your own right." OSHO.

  7. Brilliant! Thank you! The Oakville Arts Council congratulates you on 50 years fostering the arts and supporting artistic development and engagement.

  8. Wonderful video!! Inspiring and thought provoking.
    Chorus Niagara wishes the OAC a Happy 50th Birthday and MANY more!
