Art As A Vehicle For Change: "La vie est chère et les temps sont dure"

Could And Would It Ever Be Integrated Into An Early Childhood Educational Curriculum Praising A Political Or Social Outcome As Its Purpose?

This is by no means a new concept.  We accept art as social commentary even when that purpose is unintentional by the artist; we search for it, grab it and gladly reappropriate a work to serve our cause(s) as the viewer.

It still never ceases to amaze me how much awareness can be brought to an injustice through the work of an artist or team of artists.  I would even go so far to say that the belief in the ability to change or shed light on an unfortunate situation through using artistic talent and skill is the driving force behind more artists than any other force to create works.  Here's hoping that we can recognize that fact and use it in our education system to give students the chance to use art as something more than singular expression - it can be an acceptable form of communication of the need for change in an area to which they'd like to draw attention.

 "The producer and the cast of this video clip are all from Cameroon where political unrest spilled over into protests over food and fuel prices."  -

La vie est chère et les temps sont dure.”
